Mooy figures as arguably as Australia's most important player following two excellent seasons with Huddersfield Town.
An inability to break through at Bolton Wanderers in the late 2000s and an injury-hit spell with St Mirren convinced the creative midfielder to return home in a bid to reinvigorate his bid to become a Premier League player.
He laid the foundation at Western Sydney Wanderers and spectacularly hit top gear with Melbourne City, an irresistible run of form proving impossible for parent club Manchester City to ignore.
Sent on loan to Huddersfield Town, he proved a hit in the Championship as the club won promotion and parted with £8million to take him on a permanent basis, a decision Mooy justified by helping keep them in the top-flight this term.
Best Caltex Socceroos moment:
Mooy chipped in with two goals during FIFA World Cup qualifying - against Bangladesh and Jordan respectively - and will enter the tournament proper with the experience of facing Germany and Cameroon at last year's FIFA Confederations Cup.
Hyundai A-League connection:
Mooy compiled one of the finest individual campaigns the competition has ever witnessed in 2015/16, scoring 11 goals and registering 21 assists - a season record.
Did you know?
Mooy was one of Western Sydney Wanderers' three inaugural signings alongside Tarek Elrich and Kwabena Appiah.
