Injuries force changes for Australia



Australia coach Holger Osieck has been forced make a number of late changes to his squad for Wednesday's international football friendly against South Korea after a spate of injuries.

Defender Luke Wilkshire has withdrawn from the match after suffering a hamstring strain while playing for Dinamo Moscow on Saturday.

Wilkshire's place has been taken by Robert Cornthwaite, who plays for the Chunnam Dragons in South Korea's K-League and who returns to the Australia squad for the first time since his debut in 2009.

Matt McKay and Adam Sarota have also been forced out of the match at Hwaseong, McKay by a facial injury and Sarota with a knee strain.
