Tom Rogic has left Australia’s World Cup camp which would have seen him play against the UAE on the 7th of June citing personal reasons.

The Socceroos announced the shock on their website.

Football Australia today advised that Tom Rogic has notified Socceroos staff of his decision to withdraw from Australia’s squad for June 2022, citing personal reasons.

Socceroos Head Coach Graham Arnold said it is unfortunate that Rogic is unable to join the squad in the Middle East, whilst reaffirming his belief in the players already assembled in Doha.

“My focus must now be on the players we have here in Qatar,” Arnold said. “We have selected an extended squad of quality players and I believe that we will achieve something special for Australia over the next two weeks.”

No additional players will be called up to the Socceroos’ squad following Rogic’s withdrawal.

No statement or quotes are yet available from Celtic legend Rogic, let us hope all is well with the big yin.
