Australia midfielder Mark Milligan is ruled out of his side's World Cup match with the Netherlands with a hamstring injury.

Midfielder Mark Milligan has been sidelined for Australia's World Cup encounter with the Netherlands on Wednesday with a hamstring strain.

Milligan started his side's previous game against Chile on Friday evening, but after failing to train 24 hours ahead of the fixture with the Dutch, coach Ange Postecoglou has revealed that the 28-year-old will be absent from his starting lineup.
