But the 24-year-old was included in Ange Postecoglou's 23-man squad on Sunday after England-based defender Bailey Wright was ruled out due to a toe injury.

Risdon's stocks rose dramatically following...

A sprinkler ruined Trent Sainsbury's World Cup dream two years ago, and the Socceroos defender is hoping for a much smoother run to football's showpiece event this time around.

The 24-year-old has joined his fellow Socceroos in Perth before Thursday night's World Cup qualifier against Iraq at nib Stadium.

He was considered a World Cup bolter for Brazil in 2014, but then he broke his kneecap after landing on a sprinkler while making his debut for PEC Zwolle in the Dutch top flight.

The injury was...
