Risdon was one the major figures at the new Socceroos kit launch last night, alongside potential bolters Joshua Brillante and Daniel de Silva. 

Risdon started in Bert van Marwijk's last friendly against Colombia, pressing claims that he may be the Socceroos first choice right-back heading to Russia. 

“That moment would be unreal. It’s something you work towards for your whole career and from when you are a young kid,” Risdon told https://www.socceroos.com.au/.

“It’s very good vibe. There’s a new coach but the squad is mainly the same which is good,” the Western Sydney Wanderers defender said.

“Everyone is very positive at the moment.

“That week-and-a-half we were away we had two very good hit-outs and come the end of May when we have a few more sessions and games under the belt, we’ll be ready to go.”

The general public weren't quite as accepting as the fullback, although the response was mixed, with many supporting the kits. 

The Socceroos next face Czech Republic on June 1, before their last pre-World Cup match against Hungary on June 9.
