Who is Matthew Špiranović?

Matthew Thomas Špiranović is an Australian Association football player who plays for Western Sydney Wanderers and the Australia national association football team.

Špiranović started his career with Melbourne Victory, making one competitive appearance before being released with the consent of coach Ernie Merrick to join German Bundesliga club 1. FC Nürnberg. Špiranović struggled in his new climate with both injuries and form, making just 28 first team appearances over four seasons with the German club, playing more frequently for the club's second side. In search of more consistent playing time, Špiranović then joined Urawa Red Diamonds making 13 league appearances and scoring 1 goal during the 2010 J-League season. At the end of his loan spell, Špiranović signed permanently for the club in 2011 for a fee of €450.000.

Špiranović has made appearances for Australia during the 2010 and 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifiers. He has also represented Australia at the 2005 OFC U-17 Championship, the 2005 FIFA U-17 World Championship, the 2006 AFC Youth Championship, the 2008 Summer Olympics and at the 2011 AFC Asian Cup, where Australia finished runners-up.
