Australia captain Mark Milligan has praised Martin Boyle following the striker’s international debut.

Milligan and Boyle both play their club football with Scottish Premiership outfit Hibs and the former was impressed with the way the latter handled his first appearance in an Australian shirt.

“I think Martin’s a wonderful player and I think he did show his qualities when he came on,” he said, according to official Socceroos website.

“He loves getting at goal as we mentioned beforehand and he had a big hand in the equaliser in the end.”

“Your debut is always a very nerve-wracking time and I think he came on and he did very well.”

“I look forward to see what he does offer going forward.”

Meanwhile, Milligan also revealed a mixture of the Socceroos’ fighting spirit and their new-look attacking style should really encourage Australian fans.

“I think you couple that [spirit] with the things that we’ve been working on, which we’ve still got some time to fine tune and I think we’ll be very dangerous at the Asian Cup,” he added.
