Luzern's Bozanic remaining calm despite Australia call-up

Oliver Bozanic says he will not get too carried away with his recent call-up to the Australia squad.

The 24-year old midfielder, who has scored five goals in nine appearances for Swiss club FC Luzern this season, is in the running to make his international bow when the Socceroos take on France and Canada next month in Paris and London respectively.

Bozanic is well aware that Socceroos boss Holger Osieck has handed him a great opportunity but admits he is taking nothing for granted.

"Holger came down to training a couple of weeks back and basically said I was in the running, which was great," Bozanic told SBS.

"I've settled in quickly at Luzern and Holger said he had heard some good things and that's been very encouraging for me because being involved for your country is really the ultimate for a player.

"Playing regularly at club level here is really what it's all about. Being consistent is how you catch the eye - and so far I've been able to do that.

"If I get the chance to play against France it would be a massive experience but I don't want to get too carried away.

"It's a big squad and I have to show that I belong at this level and that's what I'll be aiming to do."
