The 26-man Caltex Socceroos squad has assembled in Oslo ahead of their first match under Bert van Marwijk on Saturday morning (AEST).
With our top players plying their trade in all corners of the globe, many of them have clocked up some serious air-miles to link up with the national side.
The longest journey has obviously been taken by the Australian-based players.
Hyundai A-League standouts Josh Brillante, Dimi Petratos, Josh Risdon and James Troisi flew close to 16-thousand kilometres to Oslo.
It was also a long haul for the two Asian-based defenders in the squad.
Matthew Jurman travelled 7680km from Korea, while Milos Degenek's journey was 8380km from Japan.
Recent arrival at Urawa Red Diamonds Andrew Nabbout was also on that flight.
The two players based in the Middle East don't have quite as far to go, but still faced significant plane-time.
Mark Milligan's trip from Saudi Arabia was 4780km, while Nikita Rukavytsya flew 3610km from Israel.
The European-based members of Bert van Marwijk's squad had far less taxing schedules with Aziz Behich's 2447km trip from Turkey the longest.
Robbie Kruse and Mathew Leckie travelled 1310km from Germany and Tomi Juric and Trent Sainsbury 1403km from Switzerland.
Aleksandar Susnjar's first Socceroos camp took him 1140km from the Czech Republic, while another potential debutant Danny Vukovic flew 1084km from Belgium.
The eight England-based players had a reasonably short hop from London.
Tim Cahill, Jackson Irvine, Mile Jedinak, Massimo Luongo, James Meredith, Aaron Mooy, Mat Ryan and Bailey Wright travelled 1153km, while Tommy Rogic's trip from Scotland was 1020km.
But the easiest travel of all was taken by the one Dutch-based member of the squad.
Recalled goalkeeper Brad Jones' trip from the Netherlands was just 960km.
