After securing a maiden Socceroos cap - and pulling off a sensational penalty save to boot - Vukovic has soared to even greater heights.

The Socceroos shot-stopper was recently named Genk's Fans' Player of the Season, admittedly to a few jeers from unconvinced supporters.

But it hasn't stopped the Aussie putting in the hard yards on the pitch, leading Genk to Europa League qualification with a clean sheet and 2-0 win against Zulte Waregem in the final match of the season. 

Vukovic made 45 appearances for Genk across all competitions this campaign and secured his place in Bert van Marwijk's 26-man Socceroos squad.
