One of the new brigade of the Socceroos squad, the Bursaspor defender was brought into the international scene in time for the 2015 Asian Cup.
With the left-back position a troublesome area for Australia, Behich proved a strong option in that position and started two matches as the Socceroos to an historic tournament victory.
Born in Melbourne, Behich emerged through the Victorian State Leagues and youth squads before making his professional debut with Melbourne Victory in 2009.
