Quick and with good ball control, Sterjovski can be deadly in front of goal. Perhaps his greatest virtue is his versatility which has seen him play in wide midfield roles and as a striker for the national team. A veteran of the 2006 FIFA World Cup™, where he played three matches including against Brazil, Sterjovski has most recently been utilised on the left side of midfield.
Now in the tenth year of his Socceroo career after debuting in a win against Scotland at Hampden Park in 2000. He played at the 2001 FIFA Confederations Cup and then in the Oceania qualifiers for Germany 2006. Another who hails from the prolific football nursery of Wollongong, Sterjovski has invariably been in and out of the Socceroo line-up generally failing to be rewarded with consistent starts.
After claiming the top scorer crown as a 19-year-old in the Australian national league, Sterjovski embarked on a nine-year odyssey which took him to Lille, Basel, where he played alongside fellow Wollongong-born left-sided Socceroo Scott Chipperfield, Genclerbirligi and finally Derby County. He returned to Australia last year with Perth Glory, and following the conclusion of the A-League season in February, he linked with Fulham in April for training purposes.
