Jamie Maclaren’s axing from the Socceroos World Cup squad was hardly met with fondness from the Australian football community on social media. 

The Hibernian striker was left out of Bert van Marwijk’s 26-man squad for a pre-Russia training camp in Antalya, Turkey, including friendlies against the Czech Republic and Hungary.

Maclaren joined Alex Gersbach, Apo Giannou, Mitch Langerak, Bailey Wright and Aleksandar Susnjar as omissions from the squad, announced on Tuesday morning.

That is despite his eight goals in 13 games for Hibs in Scotland, on loan from German side Darmstadt, and weekend hat-trick in a thrilling 5-5 draw against Rangers.
