Socceroos defender Jason Davidson says he's fulfilled a lifelong ambition having now represented Australia at a World Cup.
However for the 22-year-old, whose father Alan also represented the national team, there'll be little time to reflect on the achievement with the squad's focus firmly on combating a red-hot Dutch attack.
The test that awaits Ange Postecoglou's side has been made all the more tougher with news fellow defender Ivan Franjic will miss the rest of the World Cup with a torn hamstring.

Watch the video above to hear how the Aussie boys have settled back into camp and the lessons learnt from their clash in Cuiaba.
