International debut 17th November 2018 (versus South Korea)

 

Since then, Martin has won both the William Hill Scottish Cup and Ladbrokes Championship with Hibernian, as well as playing a key role in Hibernian’s first season back in the Ladbrokes Premiership, with the Leith side finishing in fourth place with a record tally points total.

Boyle is eligible to play for the Australia ‘Socceroos’ national team because his father was born in Sydney. Australia manager Graham Arnold had a meeting with Boyle in September 2018, with a view to selecting him in their next squad.

Boyle was selected for the Australia squad in October 2018, but was unable to play in their match with Kuwait as he did not yet have an Australian passport.

Boyle made his international debut for Australia on 17th November 2018, coming on as a substitute for striker and then club teammate Jamie Maclaren in a friendly match against South Korea at Lang Park, Brisbane.

In his first start for Australia, Boyle scored two goals and assisted the other in a 3–0 win against Lebanon on 20th November. He was selected for the 2019 AFC Asian Cup squad, but had to withdraw due to a knee injury sustained in a warm-up match against Oman.
