It's been a busy fortnight for the Caltex Socceroos with a friendly against Euro-bound England and the Dodoni Series against Greece providing stern tests of the squad's development.
The Socceroos went toe-to-toe with the Three Lions at the Stadium of Light and were unlucky to go down despite dominating extended periods of the match.
Ange Postecoglou's squad then travelled home to face Greece in Sydney and Melbourne, with over 70,000 fans turning out across the two matches.
Jamie Maclaren, Milos Degenek, Alex Gersbach and Jason Geria all made their Socceroo debuts, while many other new faces were given a chance to be part of the group.
