SOCCEROOS coach Bert van Marwijk is likely to give goalkeepers Brad Jones and Danny Vukovic at least 45 minutes against Colombia at Craven Cottage on Tuesday. Van Marwijk selected first-choice stopper Mat Ryan for the 4-1 defeat by Norway and said last week he wanted the chance to run the rule over all three of his custodians in his first two friendly fixtures.

Ryan had little chance with three of Norway’s four goals but was to blame for the third after his short goal-kick was intercepted by hat-trick hero Ola Kamara and buried into the back of his net.

Jones has usurped long-time No.2 Mitch Langerak following a strong 18 months in Holland with Feyenoord.

Vukovic, who has been involved in the squad under Ange Postecoglou, is in line to claim a long-awaited first international cap.
