Kisnorbo gets Australia call

Published Add your comment

Leeds defender Patrick Kisnorbo will miss next week's league clash at Swindon after being named in the Australia squad to face Oman in a 2011 Asian Cup qualifier.

The 28-year-old central defender will also be unavailable for Leeds' Johnstone's Paint Trophy tie with Grimsby at Elland Road next Tuesday.

Australia and Oman both have four points in Group B of the Asian Cup qualifiers, one point ahead of Kuwait and Indonesia. The top two teams from the group will progress to the finals in Qatar.

Kisnorbo, a free summer signing from Leicester, is the second Leeds player to be called up for international duty next week after Scotland Under-21 goalkeeper Alan Martin and should there be a third, the club will have the option of postponing the Swindon game.
