Rogic, Kruse, Luongo back in Australia squad for qualifiers

SYDNEY (AP) -- Australia coach Ange Postecoglou has boosted his attacking strength with the recall of Celtic midfielder Tom Rogic, Bayer Leverkusen forward Robbie Kruse and Queens Park Rangers' Massimo Luongo for next month's World Cup qualifiers against Bangladesh and Tajikistan.

Rogic is recalled to the 23-man Australia squad named Wednesday after an absence of 15 months, while Asian Cup stars Luongo and Kruse rejoin the side after missing May's qualifier against Kyrgyzstan with injuries.

Leyton Orient goalkeeper Alex Cisak earns his first call up to the side, captained by Tim Cahill, while forward Tommy Oar retains his spot despite being without a club since leaving FC Utrecht.

Australia hosts Bangladesh in Perth on Sep. 3 before traveling to Dushanbe, Tajikistan on Sep. 8.
