Elder: I’m Hungry For More Caps

16 September 2021

After making his debut for Australia, Callum Elder has now set his sights on winning more international caps for his country.

The 26-year-old left-back received his first call-up to the senior side at the end of August and came on as a late substitute in the Green and Gold’s 3-0 win against China in qualifying for next year’s World Cup.

“It was honestly the proudest moment of my life,” said Elder.

“I don’t think you realise just how special a moment it is until the national anthem gets played and you’re standing there in your kit representing your country.

“It’s every young footballer’s dream so I’m really pleased to have achieved that goal in my career.”

Although he was an unused substitute a few days later against Vietnam, the defender remains focused on forcing his way into the side during the next international break in October.

“I’m hungry for more caps,” Elder added.

“It’s crazy the itch you get.

“Once you’ve got one cap, you just want to play the next game and the next game.

“I’m looking forward to the next set of qualifiers at the end of this month.”
