The Socceroos have one more match – Tuesday mornings (AEDT) friendly with FYR Macedonia – before AFC qualifiers for the World Cup begin in June.
The midfielder was a part of the 2014 World Cup squad in Brazil and performed strongly when called upon but missed out on selection for Australia’s historic Asian Cup win in January this year.
And while there is plenty of water to flow under the bridge before the side gets to Russia, Bozanic has his sights on getting another crack on the world stage.
“It’s three years away but in football it just happens so quickly,” Bozanic told FFA TV.
“You really have to be prepared for every game and be available for every game and try and make your mark every time you step out and wear the green and gold.
“It’s great to be back involved with the Socceroos. I was unfortunate to miss out on the recent [squads] but it’s great to be back in and pushing to play every game.”
Bozanic said the determination to succeed and atmosphere amongst the players hasn’t changed since winning the Asian Cup and the side is as hungry as ever to keep improving.
Riding high after the 2-2 draw with Germany last week, Bozanic says it’s vital to keep building momentum against FYR Macedonia in Skopje.

“I don’t think anything changes from game to game,” the Luzern midfielder said.
“We’ve obviously been building for quite a while since the boss [Ange Postecoglou] came in.
“We just keep getting better and better every game and really showed we can match it with the world’s best.”
