Two of Brisbane Roar’s most influential players have made the Foxtel A-League All Stars’ final squad to play Serie A champions Juventus at ANZ Stadium on 10 August.
Captain Matt Smith and Johnny Warren Medallist Thomas Broich were revealed as two representatives from the reigning Hyundai A-League champions who will head into the Foxtel A-League All Stars camp on August 1 ahead of the highly anticipated encounter against the Italian giants.

After claiming the Hyundai A-League’s highest individual honour for the second time following a stellar 2013/14 season, Broich was always going to be a popular choice for the fans’ online vote.
The popular German set to front up against Juventus after featuring in the inaugural Foxtel A-League All Stars showpiece event against Manchester United last year.
“I really enjoyed the experience last year, going into camp with the other A-League boys and playing against Manchester United, so I’m looking forward to it again,” Broich said.
Smith was again a general in Roar’s defence that conceded less than a goal a game, while he also chimed in at the other end of the field finding the back of the net three times.
“It’s an honour to be selected so big thanks to the fans for voting,” Smith said.
“As a footballer, you want to test yourself against the best and this is definitely an opportunity to do so.”
The Roar duo join a number of star players from across the Hyundai A-League who’ve been named this week in coach Josep Gombau’s Foxtel A-League All Stars squad.
The Foxtel A-League All Stars will meet Juventus at ANZ Stadium in Sydney on 10 August with the match to be broadcast live and exclusive on the Seven Network nationally.
