Defending champions Australia will head into Friday’s match in Dubai bottom of Group B after their 1-0 loss to Jordan in Al Ain last Sunday. Arnold has declared attacking midfielder Tom Rogic will start against the Palestinians despite breaking a bone in his left hand against Jordan. The news is not so good on fullback Josh Risdon (groin) and striker Andrew Nabbout (groin).
