Halloran, Socceroo #572, follows in the footsteps of Matildas skipper Claire Polkinghorne in naming the Brisbane club. Ben was only 6 when the family headed south and he spent the rest of his junior career with the Wolves before heading to the QAS. His mentor at Wynnum was a man named Kevin Meicock (sic) whom he was quick to single out as being a huge influence of his career.
Halloran was plying his trade with Fortuna Dusseldorf in Germany when he won the first of his 6 Socceroo caps off the bench in 2014 against Sth. Africa in the lead-up to the World Cup where he would play in all 3 of Australia's group games.
