Archibald Thompson

Archie Thompson began his professional football career in the NSL before heading to Belgium club Lierse where he played between 2001-05.

He returned to Australia where he has now racked up over 150 caps for Melbourne Victory including his five goal effort in the 2007 A-League grand final against Adelaide United.

Thompson was the first player to reach the 150-game milestone at the club and is also Victory's leading goalscorer.

He made his Socceroos debut in 2001 and soon claimed the world record for most goals by a player in an international match as he put 13 past American Samoa.

Thompson went on to compete at his first World Cup in 2006 in Germany before helping the QANTAS Socceroos to qualify for both the 2010 World Cup in South Africa and the 2014 Brazil World Cup.
