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.
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.
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.
