Now the dust has settled we reflect on how each and every Socceroos who took to the field in Russia performed at the 2018 World Cup across all three games.
Mat Ryan - 7.5
The goalkeeper was one of Australia's best throughout, particularly shining early against France to help the side's nerves settle. His performances were vastly improved on his 2014 World Cup and he could do little to prevent any of the goals he conceded.
Josh Risdon - 5.5
Started all three games in the problematic right back role. Tried hard but found wanting at times, with fatigue a factor, having completed his A-League commitments in mid-April. Arguably shouldn't have played the Peru game. Caught out for Peru's second goal and committed the foul for France's VAR penalty, having been out of position.
Mark Milligan - 6.5
Typically dependable playing all three games in the central defensive role which wasn't settled prior to the World Cup. He was assured and strong against France in a key display. Arguably his positioning cost the Socceroos against Peru.
Trent Sainsbury - 6.5
The central defender has emerged as Australia's obvious choice to be our next captain with his quality combined with personality and leadership traits. Seldom let the side down across all three games, despite taking on the likes of Antoine Griezmann and Christian Eriksen.
Aziz Behich - 6.5
One of the side's surprise packets, showing great energy and desire at left back to both push forward and get back defensively. Behich was always willing but is limited technically as shown when he had a great chance to set up an unmarked Tim Cahill against Peru but spurned his layoff.
