The Gawler-born midfielder has given Australian fans many memorable moments domestically, including that special scorpion kick goal in 2018.

Currently, he is testing his abilities in the Championship with Midlands outfit Birmingham City. McGree joined the English side on loan ahead the 2020/21 season after departing Adelaide United to sign for Major League Soccer side Charlotte FC in October, 2020.

Birmingham extended McGree's stay in May, 2021 for another season after he made 15 Championship appearances in 2020/21.

McGree is a versatile midfielder with a keen eye for goals, as was displayed in his breakout 2019/20 A-League season spent at Adelaide where he notched 10 goals and five assists in 23 A-League appearances.

In June 2021, McGree made his debut for the Socceroos as a second-half substitute in a 3-0 victory against Kuwait. In his second appearance and his first start just days later, McGree delivered a top performance in a 5-1 drubbing of Chinese Taipei, as the now 22-year-old provided two assists for his country.

McGree became an Olympian a month later, starting every one of the Olyroos’ Tokyo 2020 fixtures.
