The right back has played in both of Australia's World Cup matches against France and Denmark.

Risdon has held his own against world-class opposition and is set to keep his spot against Peru.

The Western Sydney Wanderers defender wants the World Cup to be a stepping stone to a European league.

In the past two years the 25-year-old has been linked with interest from Germany and Belgium.

"I'm on the biggest stage in world football at the moment," he said today,

"Hopfully I can keep doing well. The main focus is on this next game and this tournament then hopefully, yeah, if something comes of it at the end then I'll definitely think about it if it's the right move for my career. It will be definitely something I'll think about.

"Europe would be amazing, I've always wanted to play in Europe. I set a goal for myself to get back into the national team a few years ago and to play at this World Cup. Hopefully it's a stepping stone for me to go to Europe."

Risdon has made the right back position his own since the move back to a back four under Bert van Marwijk.

"It's been a couple of big weeks for myself," he said.

"There were questions who was going to be in that right back position and thankfully I got the chance to prove myself in a couple of warm-ups, a couple of friendly games. I was very happy that I got the nod for two massive games so far.

"I'm very proud, I'm just enjoying the whole experience at the moment. I took a moment during the national anthem to just soak it all in in that second game. It has been an amazing two games."
