Striker Adam Taggart is relishing working with coach Graham Arnold as the Socceroos prepare to kick off the 2022 World Cup qualification campaign against Kuwait next week.
The entire 23-man squad has now assembled in Dubai for Wednesday's match (01:30 AEST), which doubles as a 2023 Asian Cup qualifier.
Taggart is currently leading the K-League's golden boot competition with 16 goals, six more than his nearest rivals.
The marksman says it will be refreshing to be mentored by former striker Arnold, who likes his teams to play with a more ruthless, attacking style.
"You've obviously seen him do it with all of his teams previously so it's nice to be involved in that, especially after the last camp to get a taste of it and now this camp," the 26-year-old said of the Socceroos coach.
"It's just something I want to take on board as much as I can and learn from him because in general he's a good coach, top coach, but obviously being a striker it's really nice to have someone above you sharing the same mentality of enjoying scoring goals and enjoying attacking.
"So he's someone I'm really looking forward to working under."
Taggart, who has three times for Australia and also played in the 2014 World Cup, said his recall to the Socceroos squad for the World Cup qualifiers was thrilling.
"(I've) always wanted to be involved in a qualifying campaign and I think the excitement and buzz that comes with it with so much on the line, and every game has so much importance," he said.
"It's fantastic to be involved in this first camp and hopefully I can stay involved and help the team, and help the country, get to where we want to be and then kick on from there."
