Midfielder Tomas Rogic
- Height 188cm
- Weight 89kg
- D.O.B. 16/12/92
- Born Griffith
Previous clubs: ANU FC, Belconnen United, Central Coast Mariners, Melbourne Victory (loan)
Caltex Socceroos cap number: 548
Debut: 14/11/2012 v South Korea
One of the most creative and technical players Australia has produced, Rogic is now consistently delivering on the ability that has been evident from his attention-grabbing first season with Central Coast Mariners.
It wasn't long before Celtic swooped in and took him to Glasgow, although his development was stunted by injuries that impacted on a loan to Melbourne Victory and cost him a spot at Brazil 2014.
However, the languid left-footer has bounced back brilliantly in the Scottish Premiership, proving instrumental in back-to-back trebles.
Earlier this month he signed a five-year contract extension with Brendan Rodgers' team to end all speculation ahead of the trip to Russia.
Best Caltex Socceroos moment:
Rogic scored a vital winner in a 3-2 victory over Saudi Arabia in June 2017. He was also on target against Germany at the FIFA Confederations Cup merely 11 days later.
Hyundai A-League connection:
The Canberra local scored five goals in 23 matches to kick-off his professional career, while an eight-game loan spell with Melbourne Victory was affected by fitness issues.
Did you know?
Rogic represented Australia at the 2010 AFC Futsal Championship, finishing as the team's top scorer with six goals.
