A journeyman of the A-League, Tongyik has now found his home on the Central Coast.

The defender has flourished under the guidance of Mariners boss Alen Stajcic to turn the Gosford side into genuine Championship contenders in the 2020/21 A-League campaign. The steely centre-back shows strength, pace and control on the ball as part of a typically resolute Mariners defence.

Tongyik previously represented Australia at U-23 level in 2018. Arnold brings Tongyik into his first Socceroos camp as the 24-year-old looks to collect his first cap for the national side.
