LIVERPOOL goalkeeper Brad Jones has received a late call-up to replace the injured Adam Federici in the Socceroos squad for the friendly against Lebanon in Beirut on Friday and the 2014 FIFA World Cup Asian Qualifier against Jordan in Amman next week.

The venue for the game against the Lebanese, which kicks-off at 3.30am AEST on Friday, has also been changed due to a virus in the grass at Sports City Stadium in Beirut
