Caltex Socceroo star Aaron Mooy’s Huddersfield Town has been drawn at home against his parent club Manchester City in the fifth round of England’s FA Cup.
Though for Mooy, he was unsure if he’d be able to play, as pondered the question on his Instagram.

Mooy is one of two Aussies still left in the FA Cup after last weekend’s results, with Aiden O’Neill’s Burnley drawn at home to giant-killers Lincoln City.
Town booked their spot in the last 16 of the Cup with a 4-0 win over Rochdale, with Mooy coming off the bench to set up two goals.
City also eased into the fifth round with a 3-0 win over fellow EPL side Crystal Palace.
The ties will be played on the weekend of February 18 and 19.
Mooy is expected to be a key player in Australia's two World Cup qualifiers in March, the first against Iraq in Iran and then a tie with UAE in Sydney.
