Ange Postecoglou will ring the Socceroos changes to his team for the second leg of the World Cup qualifying playoff with Honduras on Wednesday night.

The national team coach will start with a clean slate when considering his XI, with Tim Cahill, Mat Leckie, Robbie Kruse and Mark Milligan among the faces pushing for inclusion.

"We'll be picking an XI that we think can do the job. We had three players that didn't travel and a few more who did not play more ... there's an opportunity to put some fresh legs on," Postecoglou said.

Stajcic not interested in Socceroos job .
Alen Stajcic wants to lead the Matildas to the Asian Cup and World Cup rather than throw his hat in the ring for the vacant Socceroos position. He's one the best-performing national team coaches Australia has ever had, but Matildas boss Alen Stajcic isn't interested in changing lanes to the Socceroos.Stajcic has managed the women's national team since 2014, and like Postecoglou, has managed some famous wins.This year's Tournament of Nations success was just a friendly competition, but the Matildas did inflict a first-ever defeat of world champions USA on their way to lifting the trophy.
