What I like about Holger Osieck is that he will pick players in the Socceroos squad no matter of the age or what competition they play in.

Some 32 year old players are fitter quicker & stronger than a 21 year old these days.

Mark Schwarzer at 40 years of age is still a great goalkeeper. Mark Bresciano returned to the team after almost 2 years out of the Socceroos squad at the age of 32, playing for Al Naser & he was man of the match first match back. Matt Ryan 19 years of age plays in the A-League with the Central Coast Mariners is Mark Schwarzer's backup goalkeeper ahead of many more experienced keepers.
