Today it-s all about the letter ‘M-.

Of the 79 ‘M-s on the list, there are three Mullens (two of which are father-son), three Murphys, two Murrays, a couple of Mitchells and Morgans plus two McDonalds.
The first ‘M- to play for the Socceroos was Bill Maunder who was part of the starting XI for Australia-s first ever international in June 1922 against New Zealand, while Michael Marrone and Aaron Mooy-s debut against Guam in December 2012 was the last time a player with a surname starting with ‘M- made their debut for the national team.
