Could we see some new faces in the Caltex Socceroos squad for this month's friendly against England? We've picked out seven who might get the nod.
Coming off a superb Hyundai A-League campaign for the double-winning Reds, this could be the perfect time for the 24-year-old to add to his two Socceroos caps.
Goodwin, who has just signed with Dutch club Sparta Rotterdam, has a great left foot and loads of pace and energy.
He finished the recent A-League campaign with four goals and four assists, as well as a passing accuracy at almost 83 percent.
The well-travelled defender has matured nicely in the last couple of seasons and has been doing good things in the Chinese Super League with Tianjin Teda.
He was watched by Postecoglou during his recent trip to China and at 26 could be reaching his peak for a shot on the international front.
Another player coming off his best season in the A-League and was integral in the Wanderers’ charge to the Grand Final.
Ended the campaign with 10 goals and four assists and is a player that knows how Ange likes to play.
Could he be back in the Green and Gold for the first time since 2014?
The playmaker has had an excellent debut season with Randers in Denmark, seemingly going to a new level on the back of week in, week out first team football.
While the Socceroos aren’t short of midfield options, the 23-year-old appears ready for an opportunity.
Ended a breakout season in the Hyundai A-League with 20 goals and was named the NAB Young Footballer of the Year to boot.
“Macca” has the speed, desire and attacking intent that suits this Socceroos outfit and his confidence is at an all-time high.
Another who is coming off a superb campaign for his club with Ross County in the Scottish Premiership.
Helped the Staggies win the Scottish League Cup earlier this year and was also voted the player of the month for March.
Irvine has had a taste under Ange in the past but the 23-year-old is maturing into a solid performer and is versatile enough to play both in defence and midfield.
Never short of options between the sticks, Birighitti has thrown his hand up as another strong option in goal for Ange.
“Birras”, 25, played all but one of the Jets’ games this season, making 98 saves including two from the penalty spot.
Seems destined for a move abroad given his outstanding form and would love nothing more than to show his wares in the Green and Gold to help make that happen.
