Reliving Mark Bosnich's Socceroos moments to mark anniversary of debut

Saturday marks the anniversary of the Socceroos debut of Mark Bosnich and to mark the occasion we've selected some of the shot-stopper's finest moments in the green and gold.

Having made his debut in 1993, 'Bozza' made a total of 17 appearances over the course of seven years.

His first full appearance for the national team came in 1993 in an Oceania FIFA World Cup Qualifier final against New Zealand.

Bozza played the full match in both legs and kept clean sheets in both as the squad moved on to the next round.

His third appearance came four months later in a FIFA World Cup play-off against an Argentina side featuring the likes of Diego Maradona, where Bozza kept the Argentinians to just one goal.

Bozza’s next appearance would come in 1996 as he once again kept a clean sheet against New Zealand in a FIFA World Cup Qualifier.

In 1997, the former Manchester United goalkeeper played in six FIFA World Cup Qualifiers. In a crushing 13-0 win against the Solomon Islands, Bozza got his name on the scoresheet after stepping up to the spot to slam a penalty home into the top corner.

Bozza was also part of the squad that came painfully close to qualifying for the FIFA World Cup 1998 in a heart-wrenching two leg playoff loss to Iran.

1997 was a big year for the keeper as he made 11 of his 17 Socceroos appearances in the space of 12 months. Along with the FIFA World Cup Qualifiers, Bozza was also part of the squad that finished as Runners up in the Confederations Cup held in Saudi Arabia.

Post playing career and Bozza is now working as a pundit for Fox Sports covering the Hyundai A-League and Australian Internationals.
