“Secondly, I want to thank my teammates and all the staff that I’ve worked with. The coaches, the players, without you guys I’ll be nothing, honestly I’ll be nothing. The coaches that are not here, the players that are not here, thank you very much from the bottom of my heart.
“Now, the most important people as well, is the fans. It was tough for me to play for Australia at the start, and I tell you what every time I wore the green and gold I play with my heart. And I never left anything off the pitch. So I don’t want to keep you too long, I just want to tell you all that this is just as much for all of you as it is for me. So thank you very much Australia.”
