Tim Cahill has scored 50 goals in 104 appearances for his country, making him their greatest player to date. He’s featured in four World Cup’s throughout his career, the 2018 tournament more than likely being his last. The team rely on him heavily and across the planet he is the only player to really stand out from the Australian side.
Australia should also find comfort in Aaron Mooy. As the runner up in the 2017 AFC asian international player of the year award, he is a very exciting player to have in the squad. He’s also been in immaculate from for Huddersfield. They’ve caught the Premier League by surprise, if Australia catch the World Cup by surprise perhaps Aaron Mooy could be the constant to surprising success.
Massimo Luongo is the young talent within the squad. In playing regular football in the Premier League, he is one of a few players that will be using their knowledge of club football and applying it against some of the European international sides. He made it onto the 2015 Ballon D’or shortlist for his efforts in the championships. Despite not scoring that year, he created many assists and even more chances that resulted in his nomination.
