The Socceroos have been แทง บอล ส เต็ ป handed a World Cup lifeline after France named their squad but omitted some key names.
Anthony Martial and Alexandre Lacazette have both been left out of France's squad for this summer's World Cup, with French coach Didier Deschamps naming both on the reserve list instead.
Australia face France in their World Cup opening fixture before taking on Peru and Denmark.
Deschamps had an embarrassment of riches to choose from in the forward positions and found no room for the two Premier League stars, who have struggled with form and fitness at times this season.
Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud does make the final 23-man squad along with Kylian Mbappe, Ousmane Dembele, Nabil Fekir, Thomas Lemar, Antoine Griezmann and Florian Thauvin.
Martial will be disappointed at his omission but the forward suffered a dip in form at Manchester United towards the end of the season. The 22-year-old has been in and out of Jose Mourinho's team and has not scored or assisted a goal since February.
The news may have come as more of a shock to Arsenal striker Lacazette, who was in good form for the Gunners in the latter stages of the season, scoring five and assisting one goals in his last six league appearance.
However, there was incredible competition for places in France's attacking squad and Deschamps has instead opted for Griezmann — a diminutive speedster — and Giroud — a tall target-man — to lead the line for France in Russia.
Meanwhile, the French coach has shown a lot of faith in Manchester City defender Benjamin Mendy, picking the left back despite his spending the vast majority of the season on the sidelines with a knee injury.
Mendy has not started a match since September but he did return in April, making four appearances from the bench to help Pep Guardiola's team to reach 100 points in the Premier League.
The former Monaco man posted an emotional message on his Instagram along with images of the moment he suffered a torn knee ligament and a recent French team lining up with the message: 'It always seems impossible until it's done.'
N'Golo Kante (Chelsea), Hugo Lloris (Tottenham) and Paul Pogba (Manchester United) แทง บอล ส เต็ ป complete the Premier League contingent in the French squad, while Kurt Zouma (Chelsea), Mamadou Sakho (Crystal Palace) and Moussa Sissoko (Tottenham) were named on the reserve list.
There was also bad news for former West Ham star Dimitri Payet, who was left off the list entirely after suffering a thigh injury in Wednesday's Europa League final. The midfielder left the pitch in tears after half an hour, and was later seen in tears again as Atletico lifted the trophy following a 3-0 win.
Although the severity of his injury is yet to be confirmed, doubts over his fitness and the availability of other players has seen Deschamps leave him at home.
His Marseille team-mate Florian Thauvin was included in the squad after a fantastic season for the Ligue 1 club. Famous on these shores for his failed spell at Newcastle, Thauvin has flourished this term, scoring 22 goals and providing 11 assists in the league alone.
France are among the favourites to win the World Cup this summer and should find easy passage into the knockout rounds after drawing Australia, Denmark and Peru in the group stages. แทง บอล ส เต็ ป
