Who’ll be selected for the Socceroo squad to take on Bangladesh in Perth? Here are five bolters who just get that special phone call.
Mustafa Amini (Randers FC)
After learning his craft at Central Coast then four years at German powerhouse Borussia Dortmund, we’re now starting to see the best of the likeable midfielder. His move to the Danish league in the off-season is giving the 22-year-old valuable first team game time as he eyes the Olyroos Rio 2016 qualifiers as well as a spot in the Socceroos.
Aaron Mooy (Melbourne City FC)
The 24-year-old’s stunning goals in the Westfield FFA Cup two more reminders of the technical ability of City’s new, re-signed, marquee midfielder. He’s been on the fringes of the national team but now he could be ready to step up permanently into the national team.
Jackson Irvine (Ross County)
The Olyroo midfielder from Melbourne was named in the latest Scottish Premiership team of the week by Ladbrokes. After making his loan move from Celtic permanent, Irvine is benefitting from regular first team football with the Staggies as the 22-year-old rising star's game develops in the Scottish league.
Awer Mabil (FC Midtjylland)
An excitement machine with a style of his own who now has a new challenge ahead of him after leaving Adelaide United for the Danish league with FC Midtjylland. The 19-year-old still has a way to develop but he could be on the national team radar as he fine-tunes his game overseas.
James Meredith (Bradford City)
Powerfully built 27-year-old defender who’s built a strong career in England where he’s a club favourite at York City but now calls Bradford his home. The defender is a regular at his League One club. A former Derby County academy player, Meredith has spent his entire professional career in Britain and Ireland, without representing Australia at any youth level.
