With superb skill, creativity and vision, Antonis is very much the complete midfielder and it surely won’t be long until he is snapped up by a big European club.
Has made three appearances for the Socceroos and was a member of the 2015 Asian Cup-winning squad, although he didn’t get on the pitch.
Expect him to get more of a role heading towards the next World Cup though.
