Liverpool prospect thanks fans after 'dream come true' international debut

Brad Smith is pleased to have won his first cap for Australia.

Liverpool have plenty of young talents on show at the club at the moment. One player who is clearly a talent for the future is Brad Smith. The 20-year-old left-back has played for Liverpool in the Premier League and is currently out on loan at Swindon Town for the 2014-15 season.

Last week however was a big one for the talented attacker. He may have played for England at under-17, under-19 and under-21 level but he was in fact born in Penrith, Australia but moved to England at the age of 14 and joined the club not long afterwards.

Australia took on Belgium this week in an international friendly, and Smith, made his debut for the Australian national team.

The Liverpool starlet entered the fray for the Soccerroos after 72 minutes, replacing Everton legend Tim Cahill to make his international debut.

He has taken to Twitter to show his appreciation for all those that have supported him along the way to his first appearance for his country - even if they did lose 2-0 to the Red Devils.

Technically he is still eligible for England at the moment but with Asian Cup matches coming up in January of next year, it is probably likely he will very soon play his first competitive game for Australia.

But for now, his attention switches to the game with Saudi Arabia on Monday.
