A-League week 7 squad lists

Hagen Hopkins

Berisha is back, as are the Socceroo and All White regulars after the international break. But big names remain on the sideline with Hersi, Kewell and Juric all out with injuries.

With international qualifying and friendlies behind, the A-League returns to full strength with a bevy of national team players and previously injured or suspended players back within their respective sides. Brisbane Roar get Besart Berisha back just in time for Friday's huge game at home against Western Sydney Wanderers while Wellington Phoenix get a host of Kiwi internationals back in the side. Elsewhere, Sydney FC will try to win its third straight game and could give new signing Ranko Despotovic his debut on Saturday. Youssouf Hersi will miss another week with his foot injury while Harry Kewell will be a late decision as Melbourne Heart seek their first win of the season. Meanwhile, Phil Moss will make his managerial debut for Central Coast Mariners with a full squad in Perth.
