Younis and Hollingdale named in Subway Young Socceroos Squad for ASEAN U-19 Boys’ Championship

Subway Young Socceroos’ Head Coach, Trevor Morgan has named Marcus Younis, and Ryley Hollingdale among a 23-player squad to contest the 2024 ASEAN U-19 Boys’ Championship held in Surakarta, Indonesia from 17-29 July. 

The tournament – formerly known as the AFF Championship – features 12 Members from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Football Federation. 

Australia has been drawn in Group B for the tournament, alongside Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam and will play all their Group Stage fixtures out of Gelora 10 November Stadium. 

The 2024 edition of the Championship – which is also contested at U-16 level – will be Australia’s ninth appearance, having previously won the tournament on five occasions (2006, 2008, 2010, 2016, 2019). 

Morgan will a take vastly different squad to Indonesia than the one that toured South America in June, putting in strong performances against both Chile and Uruguay. The tournament’s timing has created an opportunity to broaden depth across the age group, prior to Morgan selecting his squad for AFC U-20 Asian Cup China PR 2025™ Qualifiers in September. 

The squad features several players who have been elevated to senior Isuzu UTE A-League Men squads in the last 12-months including Zac De Jesus (Sydney FC), Jake Najdovski (Western United FC), Tiago Quintal (Sydney FC) and Fabian Talladira (Adelaide United FC).  

Daniel Graskoski was also named after earning promotion to Melbourne Victory FC’s senior squad this week, while Marcus Younis (Western Sydney Wanderers FC) heads to Indonesia with plenty of senior minutes from throughout the 2023/24 season. 

Subway Young Socceroos’ Head Coach, Trevor Morgan said the Championships provided an important opportunity to expose players to challenging tournament conditions in Asia. 

 
“This tournament is a perfect chance to develop these players through competitive matches and allow them to show what they can bring come September,” Morgan said. 

“We’ve made several considerations when selecting this squad, including allowing players who travelled to South America in June a chance to rest before they join A-League pre-season at their respective clubs, and most importantly, the opportunity for this group players to gain experience and perform for their country, something they have earned. 

“We’ve had the chance to completely change the squad between assemblies and the fact we can do this shows the depth of talent available, and the belief we have in giving players the chance to step up. It’s important we continue to develop this group as they move through our pathway, and being involved in tournament football is the perfect environment to achieve that.” 

The Subway Young Socceroos will arrive in Indonesia in the wake of the Subway Joeys being crowned 2024 ASEAN U-16 Boys’ Champions, courtesy of a thrilling penalty shootout victory over Thailand in the Final. 

“It was great to see the Joeys come away as Champions in their age group and I’m so happy to see what they achieved in their first tournament in Asia,” concluded Morgan. 

Subway Joeys’ Head Coach and Young Socceroos’ Assistant, Brad Maloney won’t remain in Indonesia, and instead will attend the upcoming 2024 National Youth Championships Boys’ Tournament in Wollongong.
