Cahill and Schwarzer back for Wales clash

Sydney: Everton attacking midfielder Tim Cahill and Fulham goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer return to the Australian line-up for their friendly against Wales on August 10 in Cardiff.

The England-based pair spearhead an 18-man squad announced Tuesday by coach Holger Osieck -- but with Harry Kewell left off the line-up.

Fourteen of the players were part of the squad that beat New Zealand 3-0 then drew 0-0 with Serbia in June friendlies, matches that Cahill and Schwarzer missed after gruelling English Premier League seasons.

Middlesbrough striker Scott McDonald also returns, while South Korea-based defender Luke DeVere gets his first call-up.

Brett Emerton should play to become the second most capped Socceroo behind Schwarzer (89), with the Blackburn midfielder set to equal Alex Tobin`s tally of 87 internationals.

The match is the first official clash between Wales and Australia.
