The Melbourne City winger wasn't picked for Australia's recent friendlies despite setting the A-League alight after breaking into the City first team in January, and van Marwijk revealed he'd wanted too see more of the rapidly rising youngster. He is a former Croatia U/21 worldwide and now captains his club. His selection, Van Marwijk said, could provide a solution to the problematic right-back position.

"Ante (Milicic) spoke with me about Karacic, he's young and he's playing in Croatian under-21". "He is already the captain of his team, at 21-years-old".

Socceroos coach Bert van Marwijk has stamped talisman Tim Cahill and uncapped teenage gun Daniel Arzani as players who can "make a difference" at the World Cup.

But the coach indicated Cahill's experience of playing at the highest level in front of big crowds could be invaluable.

"He can be an interesting player for us".

Striker Jamie McLaren's recent goal-scoring exploits in Scotland won him a recall alongside goalkeeper Mitchell Langerak, Alex Gersbach and Apostolos Giannou. He also has a problem that he is suspended for the last three games. He's not 19 like Arzani, he's twice as old. All 26 players from Van Marwijk's first selection have been retained. "I had a good experience with the 26 players in the 10 days that I worked with them, so I had no reason not to nominate them again".

"He plays only right-back and we don't have a lot of players in that position.it's a position we discuss a lot".

The 26 man squad will travel to Turkey for pre-tournament training camp and then play friendlies in Austria and Hungary.

The Dutchman, who led the Netherlands to the 2010 World Cup final, otherwise found space for all the usual suspects in his 32-man party, which he will cut down to 23 before the Federation Internationale de Football Association deadline on June 4.

"I am looking forward to the time in Turkey because there I will be able to work with the players every day, and most of the time it will be two times a day", Van Marwijk said.

"We have travelled extensively and watched many, many matches because we want to get as much information on as many players as possible".

The Socceroos open their World Cup campaign against France on 16 June before meeting Denmark and Peru.

"He doesn't play (at the moment), maybe five or 10 or 20 minutes".
