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.
