Grozos sustained an injury during the team’s pre-tournament training camp in Singapore which has ruled him out of the competition.

Metcalfe has been involved in previous Young Socceroos training camps this year.

Australia will commence its 2018 AFC U19 Championship campaign tonight against Korea Republic at the Patriot Chandrabhaga Stadium in Bekasi, Indonesia. Kick-off is at 11pm (AEDT).
