That magical word ‘game-time’ is all important when it comes to Socceroos selection these days and the January transfer window brings opportunity for those currently out of favour.
Robbie Kruse (Bayer Leverkusen)
The 28-year-old has spent almost six years in Germany but the past few seasons haven’t been fruitful for a player who has been beset by injuries.
He may be one of too few Socceroos who is part of a big European club, but now is the time to move, with opportunities seldom forthcoming. Kruse has made one start and two substitute’s appearances all season, constituting barely 90 minutes of club football. He’s been linked with a move to China as well as the United States.
