Each day we pick out a player and cut through the noise to give analytical, objective insight. Stoke and Australia defender Harry Souttar is in focus on Wednesday. And one of their standout players was Harry Souttar - the giant Stoke City centre-half who helped the Socceroos keep important clean sheets against Tunisia and Denmark to secure second spot in the group.
