Best World Cup moment
Jason Davidson started in all three of Australia’s matches at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
He was on the left side of defence and faced up against the likes of Chile’s Alexis Sanchez and the Netherlands’ Arjen Robben in matches where Australia took the game to their much more fancied opponents.
A solid World Cup performance from the young full-back earned Davidson a move to English Premier League club West Bromwich Albion.
It also helped him gain selection in the 2015 AFC Asian Cup squad which went on to win the tournament on home soil.
Davidson scored at a crucial juncture in that tournament, his first international goal coming in the semi-final win over United Arab Emirates to secure a spot in the final.
He was also in the six-yard box in extra time of the final as James Troisi prodded home the winner against South Korea, with Davidson all set to tap home the ball until a deflection took the ball into Troisi's path.
Davidson is still playing, currently on loan with Slovenian side Olimpija Ljubljana.

Jason is the son of Socceroos legend Alan Davidson, who made 76 appearances for the national team between 1980 and 1991.
