Ryan McGowan has enjoyed a successful career plying his trade around the world.

After debuting for the Socceroos in 2012, he found himself starting for Australia against the Netherlands at the 2014 World cup – where he famously provided the assist for Tim Cahill’s dramatic goal against the Netherlands.

The defender has represented Australia at every level and has 21 caps for the Socceroos.

Born in Adelaide, McGowan was part of Australia’s 2014 FIFA World Cup squad and is playing his part as they attempt to qualify for a fifth-straight edition of the tournament.

After stints in Scotland and China, the centre-back has enjoyed a successful return to Australia, winning the Premiership/Championship double in his first campaign with Sydney FC.

In his two seasons at Sydney, McGowan made 50 appearances, helping to keep 16 clean sheets and earn his side a pair of trophies.

He recently announced that he will be returning to Asia, signing a deal with Kuwait SC.
