My Aussie Players To Watch in 09/10

Before every season I like to pick a few overseas Aussie players who I like to keep an eye on and this year is no different! This year I have decided to keep an eye on the progress of some bright young talents:

Oliver Bozanic - Signed to EPL club Reading, currently on loan to recently relegated League 2 outfit Cheltenham Town. Oliver is a 20 year old left sided attacking midfielder who has made recent appearances for the Young Socceroos and has received his first senior National Team call up for the friendly against Ireland on August 12.

Aaron Mooy - Squad member for Bolton Wanderers. 18 year old Mooy is one of Australia's brightest young stars, also getting his first Socceroos call up for the friendly in Ireland. Big tickets on this kid.

Nikita Rukavytsya - First team member for FC Twente. Needs no introduction for those familiar with Australian Football, has the potential to be the next genuine Australian superstar in wolrd football. Blistering pace but still a raw talent, hopefully he can be shaped into a top shelf striker in Holland.

I'll post any worthwhile news that pops up for these kids throughout the 09/10 season.
