The defender made his debut for the Socceroos against Hong Kong in a 2013 East Asian Cup qualifier and has gone on to earn 18 caps as the team’s first-choice right-back.
Franjic started his senior career with Victorian club St. Albans Saints before working his way towards his first Hyundai A-League contract with Brisbane Roar FC in 2009.
The 27-year-old won two Championships under Socceroos boss Ange Postecoglou and was an integral part of the 2013/14 Brisbane side that claimed the double.
He signed for his current club Torpedo Moscow in 2014.
Franjic was part of the Socceroos’ 2014 FIFA World Cup squad but was injured in the opening game against Chile, ruling him out of the tournament.
He played every minute of Australia’s successful Asian Cup campaign before succumbing to a hip complaint in the final. But he remains a crucial part of the team as the Socceroos aim to qualify for the next World Cup in the country where he currently plays his club football.
