5 Best Australia Players in World Cup 2022

Here we look into the top 5 Australian players in the Australia Potential Squad who could significantly impact the World Cup 2022 in Qatar.

#1 Jamie Maclaren

Jamie Maclaren will be the talisman in attack for Australia in the World Cup 2022. The Melbourne City striker was the top scorer in the A-League last season with 15 goals.

The 29-year-old has already scored 3 goals in 2 matches this season. Much of the goal-scoring responsibility will be on him in the upcoming World Cup.

#2 Mathew Leckie

We have another Melbourne City forward on our list, Mathew Leckie. The 31-year-old will be another key man in attack for the Socceroos in Qatar.

The winger scored 9 goals and provided 4 assists last season in the A-League. Leckie’s combination with Maclaren could come in handy.

#3 Aaron Mooy  

We have the experienced campaigner Aaron Mooy to control the midfield. The 32-year-old Celtic midfielder could be a key player for the Socceroos in the FIFA World Cup. He could be fundamental to controlling the ball and distributing around.

#4 Craig Goodwin

Next on our list is the Adelaide United forward Craig Goodwin. The 30-year-old has been a key winger for Adelaide United. Goodwin scored 9 goals and provided 7 assists last season in the A-League.

He hopes to contribute greatly to the Australian attack in the Qatar World Cup.

#5 Mathew Ryan 

The Aussie fans can rely on the safe hands of their skipper Mathew Ryan. The Copenhagen starting goalkeeper is in fantastic form and is expected to have a good World Cup campaign in Qatar in November.
