Defender Aziz Behich
- Height 170cm
- Weight 63kg
- D.O.B. 16/12/90
- Born Melbourne
One of the new brigade of the Socceroos squad, the Bursaspor defender was brought into the international scene in time for the 2015 Asian Cup.
With the left-back position a troublesome area for Australia, Behich proved a strong option in that position and started two matches as the Socceroos to an historic tournament victory.
Born in Melbourne, Behich emerged through the Victorian State Leagues and youth squads before making his professional debut with Melbourne Victory in 2009.
He joined cross-town rivals Melbourne Heart (now City) for the following season and spent three years there before joining the Turkish club.
While it took some time for Behich to crack the first team at the club, he has emerged as a starter this season which has helped establish himself back in the national fold.
