Striker Rory Fallon and attacking midfielder Michael McGlinchey both retain their places after impressive debuts in Amman, with Jacob Spoonley coming in for Moss leaving Mark Paston as the most experienced goalkeeper in the squad. Blackburn Rovers defender Ryan Nelsen will captain the side having missed the FIFA Confederations Cup with injury.
"We've had opportunities over the last four years to shape the team to where it's got to now," said Herbert. "It's an incredibly important couple of fixtures and I'm delighted to be able to name the squad."
