Former midfielder Bresciano played 84 times for the Caltex Socceroos, scoring on 13 occasions, and was a member of Australia’s squad at the 2006, 2010 and 2014 FIFA World Cups, playing a record nine games.
He enjoyed a 20-year professional career, including stints in Italy’s Serie A with Lazio, Parma and Palermo, and is an FFA Hall of Fame inductee.
