While he was largely responsible for the Netherlands' equaliser by keeping Robin van Persie onside, Jason Davidson also looked capable of filling the left-back role for the long term, while RyanMcGowan was solid at the back and his part in setting up Tim Cahill's much-lauded goal against the Netherlands was largely overlooked. It also shouldn't be forgotten that one of Australia's form attacking players, Robbie Kruse, missed this tournament with a knee injury, while the also absent Tom Rogic is expected to be an attacking stalwart once he is injury-free and playing more consistently.
