Hyundai A-League 2019 Grand Final hero one month, Caltex Socceroos debutant the next.
It's been a big three weeks for Sydney FC custodian Andrew Redmayne, who made his international debut for Australia in Friday night's 1-0 loss to Korea Republic in Busan.
The 30-year-old had shone for the Sky Blues throughout the 2018/19 season, which culminated in the former Arsenal trialist starring in the club's penalty shootout win over Perth Glory in the Grand Final on May 19.
That saw Caltex Socceroos coach and former Sydney boss Graham Arnold make Redmayne one of 11 players from the Hyundai A-League selected in his squad for last night's international friendly in Busan.
Redmayne was one of four Caltex Socceroos debutants on the night, alongside Sydney teammate Brandon O'Neill, former Brisbane Roar flyer Brandon Borrello and Rotherham United man Ryan Williams.
The highlight of the Gosford-born 'keeper's night was a fine reaction save to deny Tottenham Hotspur star Son Heung-min late in the second half.
“It’s a moment I will remember forever,” Redmayne said.
“I can’t thank the boys, the staff and Arnie enough. It’s been an amazing week.
“I felt really comfortable out there tonight and it was a great experience for many of us who haven’t had that type of exposure at international level.”
