The 18-year-old had barely played in the A-League before this season but his rapid rise underlines why he is one to watch for the future

Riley McGree has had a breakout 2016-17 A-League season, leading to a surprise Socceroos call-up, but the Adelaide United teenager remains a relative unknown to mainstream Australia.

Stats: Why McGree has caught the eye

Having only made one senior appearance for the Reds before this campaign, McGree has played 15 games in all competitions, filling a variety of midfield roles as he's impressed Adelaide coach Guillermo Amor and - subsequently - Socceroos boss Ange Postecoglou.

The 18-year-old's rapid rise has plenty of pundits predicting a long and illustrious career for McGree.

McGree included in 23-man Socceroos squad

The South Australia local will link up with the rest of Postecoglou's squad in Iran by the end of the week.

The Socceroos face Iraq at a neutral venue in Tehran on March 23 and host United Arab Emirates in Sydney five days later in their next two World Cup qualifiers.
