Hot World Cup player of the day: Ryan McGowan (Australia)

Australia may have been one of the first teams eliminated from the World Cup (along with my beloved Spain), but 24-year-old Ryan McGowan has come a long way in just two matches. He made his World Cup debut Saturday when he was called on to replace an injured teammate early in the second half. And with Ivan Franjić still injured, McGowan (who plays with Shangdong Luneng  Taishan in China) started Wednesday’s match against Netherlands. Although Australia was defeated 3-2, he was able to show his strength as defender and provided the assist for Tim Cahill’s goal.
