Franjic, who plays for Torpedo Moscow in Russia, is one of the 23 players selected by Postecoglou and he will be expected to line up for Real Madrid jersey james the Socceroos in the tournament opener against Kuwait at the Rectangular Stadium (AAMI Park) on Friday 9 January.

Postecoglou's team even lost 1-0 to Qatar in Doha in October before showing a marked improvement in a narrow 2-1 defeat to Japan in Osaka in November.
The sequence of disappointing results that saw the Socceroos plunge to their worst ever ranking of 102 in November - before a move back up to 100 in the latest FIFA rankings - has led to serious reservations among the fans about the team's ability to have a successful Asian Cup on home soil.
However, Franjic said he was convinced it will all come together during the tournament on home soil.
"I've known Ange from my days in Brisbane and he showed with Roar what he can do, winning the championship in his first full season," Franjic said.
"Even with the Socceroos whenever you are in camp you can see how much the new boys are improving and better understanding his playing style.
"He knows what he's doing and we should all have faith in him.
"We have shown glimpses of what the Socceroos can do and I have no doubt we will be ready come 9 January and have a good Asian Cup."

He has been training every day in Mercurial Superfly IV FG his hometown Melbourne for two weeks since the Russian league went into its winter break.

"There is no doubt that we are in a tough group but after going into camp we'll get physically and mentally ready for round Barcelona jersey messi one," he said.
"Winning the first game is crucial, which I'm positive we will do, because it would make Nike Mercurial Women cleats it much easier for the rest of the tournament.
"If you lose your first match it's a big setback because you'd have to win the next two matches to get through.
"And you would not want to go into the final group match against the Koreans needing to win to qualify.
"Our fans know this and I'm sure they'll get behind us in or first game against Kuwait."
