Scottish-born Martin Boyle is one of the Socceroos’ bright attacking spark, injecting pace and purpose into the team’s forward line.
The Aberdeen-born winger has forged quite the reputation in the Scottish Premiership with Hibernian, where he has been based for the last five years.
The 27-year-old has made over 100 appearances for the Edinburgh based outfit and has signed a three-year-deal which will see him remain at Easter Road until 2023.
In the 2020/21 Premiership season, Boyle helped Hibernian notch a third-place finish and reach the Scottish Cup Final, scoring 12 league goals and assisting six others in a consistent season in Scotland.
Despite his Socceroos career being in its infancy, Boyle had the privilege of leading the line on debut with Australian legend Tim Cahill on his final match. The match symbolised a potential change of guard toward the future of the Socceroos with Boyle playing a prominent role.
After scoring two and assisting another on his first start for Australia, Boyle unfortunately would not carry his form into the 2019 AFC Asian Cup after he suffered a serious knee injury in the lead up to the tournament.
Boyle returned to fitness to come off the bench during the Socceroos’ FIFA World Cup Qualifier against Jordan in November 2019, before hitting top form at club level and returning to grab a goal and assist as Australia’s round two qualifiers came to a close in Kuwait, 18 months later.
