Shane Lowry insists he is looking to make an impact at international level just like a trio of fellow Australians before him.
The 23-year old defender is currently plying his trade with Championship club Millwall and is hoping to follow in the footsteps of former Lions stars Tim Cahill, Kevin Muscat and Lucas Neill who all went on to be key players in the Australian national team.
"I would love one day to play for Australia at senior level; it's something I am definitely aiming for,” Lowry said.
"Under Pim Verbeek I got in a few squads and I was in the final 27 players for the 2010 World Cup before it was trimmed back.
"All I can do now is focus on Millwall and hope that I can get noticed at some stage.
"But I definitely haven't given up hope and I'm going to keep plugging away and my chance may come one day."
