"I know some of the Australian players from the past. Tim Cahill was one of my players. Obviously he’s not playing this game but I know their qualities.
"I also I know Lucas Neill from when he had a short spell at Everton. I’ll sure they’ll be up for the game. If you're picking the best from the A-League then we know it's going to be a big test for us."
The All-Stars representatives were speaking to footballaustralia.com.au.
