Australia has long found the left-sided defensive role problematic to fill, but Aziz Behich has enjoyed an increasingly consistent run in the position over the past 12 months. Capable of playing as a traditional left-back, Behich was utilised as a wing-back by previous coach Ange Postecoglou where his athleticism and pace came to the fore.

After missing selection for the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™, Behich featured in the 2015 AFC Asian Cup-winning squad, and wore the Green and Gold in Russia last year at the FIFA Confederations Cup. Born in Melbourne of Turkish background, Behich has played his club football for Bursaspor since 2013.
