The versatile Williams has been one of Melbourne Victory’s best over the opening three rounds.

The Sydney FC star, who was in the frame for the 2014 FIFA World Cup squad, is in career-best form and looks tailor-made for international football in Ange’s system.

If it wasn’t for a tough run with injuries, Herd would already have a lot of international caps to his name.
