One player representing his country at this year's World Cup in Brazil can count The Queen Elizabeth II Stadium as one of the grounds he has played at during his career. Swindon Town's Massimo Luongo, part of Australia's 23 man squad, captained the Tottenham Hotspur team who visited on Wednesday 16th November 2011 for the ground opening.

Twenty one year old Luongo went on loan to Swindon Town in March 2013 and signed permanently in August of that same year for a fee of £400,000. He was eligible to play internationally for Italy (county of birth of his father), Indonesia (mother) and Australia as he was born in Sydney. He played 53 times for Swindon Town in League One last season scoring six times.

A massive congratulations also goes out to Albert Adomah who played at Harrow Borough under Dave Howell from 2006 to 2008 before moving to Barnet, Bristol City and currently Championship side Middlesbrough. Adomah has played fifteen times for Ghana and will probably start the game against USA tonight.

Who knows we may see Erhun Oztumer playing in 2018? The attacking midfielder lit up the Ryman Premier league with his performances for Dulwich Hamlet last season which alerted many football league sides to his quality. He has recently moved to League One side Peterborough United and I'm sure he will do very well for the League One side next season.
