Milligan withdraws from Australia squad

9 September 2019

Blues captain Mark Milligan has withdrawn from the Australia squad due to a minor leg injury.

Football Federation Australia (FFA) today announced that the Socceroos captain has been ruled out of tomorrow’s FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 qualification match against Kuwait due to the knock.

Milligan returned to England over the weekend for further treatment and will be assessed ahead of Blues' Sky Bet League One game against Fleetwood Town on Saturday.

Caltex Socceroos Head Coach Graham Arnold said: "We didn’t want to take any risks with Mark so we arranged for him to travel back to his club for ongoing care."
