Caltex Socceroos coach Bert van Marwijk will sit down soon to select the squad for the twin friendlies against Norway and Colombia in March.
The Dutchman will be familiar with many of the regulars from his time in charge of Saudi Arabia, but which potential newcomers might have caught his eye?
Read on for five uncapped Hyundai A-League players who could on be the radar and vote in the poll below for who you believe deserves a shot.
The City youngster is yet to complete a 90-minute match at senior level, but Arzani already looks a class above.
His rare combination of pace, poise, vision and dribbling ability could make him hard to ignore.
The 19-year-old further advanced his compelling case with a superb goal against Perth Glory on the weekend.
Hyundai A-League fans can thank Ernie Merrick for helping unlock Petratos' full potential.
The Newcastle Jets boss has afforded the 25-year-old a free licence to roam behind the striker and has been rewarded with seven assists and an exceptional return of nine goals.
Petratos' ability to score from distance is as good as anyone in Australia and could make the difference in a tight contest.
Born a month after Petratos, Nabbout is enjoying a similar trajectory to his Jets team-mate.
The versatile former Melbourne Victory man is a persistent handful for defenders with his power, directness and determined nature.
Nine goals - the last of which was a stunner against Western Sydney - and seven assists illustrate the all-round package Nabbout offers.
Any player seeking a breakout season need only to look to Elsey's example.
The commanding central-defender has appeared in every league fixture for Adelaide United, usually holding the defence together in the absence of more experienced partners.
His leadership skills have not gone unnoticed: Elsey, still 23, captained the Reds to a 1-0 in Wellington last month.
At times overshadowed by Josh Brillante, O'Neill is an equally important cog in the Sydney FC machine.
The Australia U23 midfielder is tidy on the ball, tactically astute and full of energy.
Best of all, he's coming from a successful environment and is in the middle of his best patch of the campaign.
