Aussie Liverpool goalkeeper Brad Jones was spotted vacationing in Dubai with his hot girlfriend Danielle Lawrence.
Dubai-girlfriend.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Dailymail.co.uk obtained some snaps of Jones and his girlfriend on holiday. Jones took advantage of the opportunity of not competing at the forthcoming World Cup but taking his stunning girlfriend to Dubai. Jones had a son named Luca with Lawrence, who died at a very young age of six years old because of leukemia. In 2012, Lawrence gave birth to their second son, Nico.
According to the British webloid, Jones looked "happy" as he enjoyed his vacation with Lawrence even though his team didn't win in the Premier League and the fact that he wasn't selected to become a member of the Australia's World Cup squad. Jones reportedly only played three Football Association (FA) cup for Liverpool in all three seasons.
Meanwhile, Australia's World Cup squad was announced consisting of quite a number of young talents and a few veterans.
Coach Ange Postecoglou made the announcement of those players who made the cut for Australia's World Cup Squad on May 14, Sportsillustrated.cnn.com reported. The 30-man squad will be cut down to only 23 players by June 2, the Web site further reported. According to Postecoglou, he was happy about what currently comprises the current squad.
"We've had some injuries and disruptions, particularly in the defense," said Postecoglou. "We have some challenges there, but overall, I'm happy with the balance," Postecoglou added.
"Yes, there is some inexperience, but we need to regenerate the team."
"We needed to make some meaningful change, but at the same time, understand that it's a World Cup."
Australia is in the same group as Spain, Netherlands, and Chile in the upcoming World Cup in Brazil.
