■ Comments
I am very proud and honored to be called up to the Australian national team. Returning to the national team was not an easy journey, and although I went through a very difficult time with my injury, I was able to come back safely. I would like to thank everyone involved at the club, the coaching staff, coaches/physiotherapists and my teammates who have worked so hard to get me back in top condition and allow me to enjoy football again. Without all of you, the representative election would not have been possible. As an Albirex Niigata player, I am happy to represent the club internationally. thank you very much.
