Trying to shut out the likes of Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Danny Welbeck is surely one of the most daunting challenges in all of world football. It is a task that would not readily be handed to a youngster, yet Mat Ryan is not your regular 20-year-old goalkeeper. The Mariners custodian has already made his debut for the Socceroos, is the reigning A-League Goalkeeper of the Year and has has conceded the equal-fewest number of goals in the domestic competition this season. Having already attracted the attention of English Premier League clubs in recent months, a run out for Ryan against the Red Devils could be an ideal shop window for a move to Europe.
