Jack Rodwell has been named the captain of the A-Leagues All Star squad for Wednesday night’s game against LaLiga giants FC Barcelona at Accor Stadium.
There are changes from the 30-player list, primarily as a result of the finalists being confirmed as Melbourne City and Western United in Saturday’s Isuzu UTE A-League Grand Final.

Adelaide United defender Alexandar Popovic, Macarthur FC centre-back Adrian Mariappa and Olivier Boumal of Newcastle Jets have been drafted in by Dwight and his coaching team.
City quartet Mathew Leckie, Jamie Maclaren, Marco Tilio and Curtis Good and Western United’s Jamie Young, Ben Garuccio and Leo Lacroix will no longer participate as they prepare for Saturday’s Grand Final in Melbourne.
Injuries have forced Adelaide United captain Craig Goodwin and Melbourne Victory pair Jake Brimmer and Roderick Miranda to withdraw, while Newcastle Jets forward Beka Mikeltadze is out of the squad due to personal reasons.
