Australia midfielder Aaron Mooy continued where he left off in the Hyundai A-League with an eye-catching display for Huddersfield Town in their 2-0 win at Oldham on the weekend.
Mooy, 25, has developed into a key player for the Socceroos, earning a move to Premier League giants Manchester City before being immediately loaned out to Huddersfield Town.
And if this is any indication, he'll do very well in the Championship with media clearly impressed by the Aussie's passing ability in the 60 minute display, before wholesale changes were made by coach David Wagner.
And at international level, Mooy is enjoying life under coach Ange Postecoglou, praising the relentless approach of the boss as he quickly settles into life at ambitious Huddersfield.
The 16-time Australia international was full of praise for Postecoglou and said the coach's possession-based style suited him.
"He's a very good coach," Mooy told FIFA.com.
"The style that he wants to play is the way I like playing as well. I'm happy to be playing under him. He's intimidating.
"But the way he wants to play football, I want to play like that as well. I'm enjoying it."
Postecoglou's men face Japan, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Iraq and Thailand in Group B in the third round of qualifying.
Mooy said he was looking forward to the challenge of the group, believing in his team's chances.
"It's definitely a tough group. There are a few hard nations in there, especially the away games are always difficult," he said.
"We're confident the way we're playing and improving. Each game that I've been involved in I've seen an improvement in the way we're playing.
"Hopefully, by the time the qualifiers come around, we'll be at the top of our game."
