Socceroos Podcast | Maty Ryan: Boyhood Arsenal dream come true
On the latest episode of The Socceroos Podcast we chat with Socceroo cap #555, Maty Ryan.
It has been a whirlwind few weeks for the Socceroos shot-stopper, who last month signed a dream deal with English Premier League heavyweights Arsenal.
This podcast sees Ryan explain how the move came about, involving the role played by Socceroos legend Tim Cahill and his first impressions of the club behind the scenes.

Ryan also discusses some of his greatest memories in Green and Gold, including the 2015 Asian Cup, and gives his take on the impressive form of a handful of Australian goalkeepers throughout Europe and Asia.
