Schwarzer is not in the Australian squad for friendly matches against France and Canada

Schwarzer is not in the Australian squad for friendly matches against France and Canada

 Although coach Holger Osieck is not put hi into the team, and still claims that Schwarzer is the national team number one

It seemed he has paid the price for moving from Fulham to English Premier League giants Chelsea, where he is stuck on the bench behind Petr Cech.

Osieck has made ​​it clear the former Fulham man is only missing to give Mitch Langerak and Matt Ryan an opportunity.

"I know what he can do. He's our number one goalkeeper," Osieck said.

"But if I keep playing him, what about the others we may need?

It is obvious that Osieck wants to give the opportunity to young generations, so he decided to try a young Mitchell Langerak who defends for Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League against Napoli.

"Mitch Langerak deserves a minimum of one game because he's a very good servant to our team," Osieck said.

Second option is Matt RYAN who is the first goalkeeper Belgian Brugge.

The veteran goalkeeper (Schwarzer), who turns 41 next month, is the Socceroos' most capped player, having made ​​108 senior appearances for his country.
 
The friendly against France will be played at the Parc de Princes in Paris on Friday October 11 (6am AEST, Saturday October 12) while the match against Canada will be at Craven Cottage in London on Tuesday October 15 (6am AEST, Wednesday October 16).
