Australian midfielder Baccus was signed by Stephen Robinson in the summer of 2022 and made an immediate impact with a string of brilliant performances that propelled the previously uncapped Aussie into the Socceroos World Cup squad in the Autumn where he made history as the first ever Saints player to appear at finals.

In total, Baccus appeared in all four 2022 World Cup final matches for Australia including the last 16 tie against Argentina where he was chosen to play in direct opposition to Leo Messi. After returning to Saints in December, his form unsurprisingly dropped slightly as speculation about his future was widespread throughout World Football, however the energetic midfielder has been back to his best since the transfer window closed in late January.
