Coe, Pain fly back for Victory game

Melbourne Victory players Nathan Coe and Connor Pain have been temporarily released from the Socceroos squad in South Korea to play for their club against English Premier League giants Liverpool.

Coach Holger Osieck granted the duo permission to fly home from Seoul on Sunday for the Victory's sold-out festival clash at the MCG on Wednesday night.

However, their Victory teammate, veteran Socceroos striker Archie Thompson, remained with the Australian squad.

Pain, yet to earn his first senior international cap, was part of the Young Socceroos squad at the under-20 World Cup in Turkey last month.

It's unlikely the 19-year-old midfielder would have gotten game time in Australia's East Asian Cup campaign and, after keeper Eugene Galekovic's heroics in Saturday's opening scoreless draw against South Korea, Coe probably won't be getting match time either.

Coe and Pain are scheduled to return to the Socceroos on Thursday night, ruling them out of the next match against Japan in Hwaseong on Thursday but making them available for Australia's final match of the four-team tournament against China next Sunday.
