FIFA 17: Caltex Socceroos special

Which Caltex Socceroos rate the highest on FIFA 17?

17. Jamie Maclaren

FIFA Rating: 70

Maclaren took the Hyundai A-League by storm last season with 20 goals. Is maturing into an impressive player and not many defenders can match him for speed.

16. Massimo Luongo

FIFA Rating: 70

The 24-year-old is a key part of the Caltex Socceroos midfield. He has goals in his locker too and is versatile, able to play as a holding midfielder or further forward. 

15. Tom Rogic

FIFA Rating: 70

A genuine number 10, Rogic is the type of player that excites fans, something he’s doing on a weekly basis with Celtic in Scotland. Is in simply electric form right now and still just 23, is only going to get better.

14. Tommy Oar

FIFA Rating: 71

The speedy winger is back at Brisbane Roar and poised to return to devastating best. An excellent crosser, good dribbler and eye for a pass, Oar has it all.

13. Bailey Wright

FIFA Rating: 71

A regular for the Caltex Socceroos these days, Preston North End defender Wright is a real physical presence and fierce competitor. The Mornington Peninsula lad's tackling and aerial power are his strength.

12. Josh Risdon

FIFA Rating: 71

The youngster has developed into a premier right back at Perth Glory. He’s quick, a sound defender and has strong distribution, one of the main reasons he’s becoming a regular in Ange’s Caltex Socceroo squads.

11. Matt McKay

FIFA Rating: 71

A tireless worker and inspirational leader in the heart of midfield. A true professional, McKay never lets anyone down whether that’s playing for Brisbane Roar or the Caltex Socceroos.

10. Mathew Leckie

FIFA Rating: 72

Leckie is one of the most potent attacking weapons in the Caltex Socceroos squad, with pace to burn and never-say-die attitude. Is coming up against Germany’s best players in the Bundesliga each week, and continues to make a good impression.

Winger Mat Leckie has a date with Borussia Dortmund this weekend before joining up with the Caltex Socceroos.

9. Adam Federici

FIFA Rating: 73

The third gloveman in the top 10, Federici’s shot-stopping ability is his biggest strength. At 31 he brings good experience and has excellent reflexes.

8. Rhys Williams

FIFA Rating: 73

The versatile 28-year-old may not have played much football over the last couple of seasons but is stacked with ability. This one-time Socceroo is looking to resurrect his career in the Hyundai A-League with Perth Glory this season.

7. James Troisi

FIFA Rating: 73

The classy attacking midfielder is packed with talent which can devastate any opponent on his day. Just ask Korea Republic in last year’s Asian Cup final.

6. Robbie Kruse

FIFA Rating: 74

The lively winger has shown he can score goals as well as create them and provides a real X-factor for the Caltex Socceroos. Deservedly ranked as one of FIFA's best Aussies.

5. Tim Cahill

FIFA Rating: 74

Australia’s greatest-ever goal scorer, still delivering at the ripe old age of 36. When you need a goal, ‘Super Timmy’ is your man.

4. Mitch Langerak

FIFA Rating: 75

An accomplished keeper with excellent technique, Langerak is enjoying life with Vfb Stuttgart in Germany right now. Along with Ryan, the Caltex Socceroos goalkeeping ranks are in safe hands.

3. Mile Jedinak

FIFA Rating: 76

The Caltex Socceroos skipper may have moved down to the Championship but is still highly-rated thanks to his strong physicality and defending strength. A real leader.

2. Aaron Mooy

FIFA Rating: 76

In career-best form, Mooy is starring for club and country right now. Will be a key figure for the Caltex Socceroos on their Road to Russia.

1. Mathew Ryan

FIFA Rating: 79

He’s the Caltex Socceroo’s number one and is the highest rated of Ange Postecoglou’s squad. The complete package for a keeper - an excellent shot-stopper and has quality distribution with his feet. No wonder he’s playing in La Liga, one of the best leagues in the world.
