Australia call up Maclaren to preliminary WCup squad

SYDNEY (AP) Striker Jamie Maclaren has been recalled to Australia's preliminary World Cup squad because of concerns over the fitness of Tomi Juric.

Australia's head coach Bert van Marwijk released a statement on Monday confirming that Maclaren was joining the team's training camp in Turkey ahead of the final squad selection next month.

"Tomi Juric has had a knee issue over the last three weeks which is being monitored by our medical team," van Marwijk said.
