He has since gone on to win a place in the team in the league and also featured against Kashima Antlers in the AFC Champions League. He played in Adelaide's Champions league semi final's 1st leg 3-0 victory over Uzbekistan outfit Bunyodkor and was surely the best game in his short career.[1]

In November 2008 Daniel signed a new two year deal with Adelaide keeping him at the club until the end of the 2010-11 season.[2] Mullen began to hold down a regular starting spot at Right Back for Adelaide including starting the inugral Club World Cup game for the South Australian team in which he scored the equalising goal against Waitakere United. Mullen scored his first league goal for Adelaide with a powerful header in the 3-2 victory over North Queensland Fury in Townsville in Round 4. He has had trouble cracking into the first team squad after Robert Cornthwaite and Iain Fyfe both regular at centre back. [3]

Western Sydney Wanderers[edit]

On 3 February 2014 he signed, along with Golgol Mebrahtu, with Western Sydney Wanderers. However, since there are no spaces remaining in the club's A-League squad, Mullen will only be eligible to participate in Western Sydney Wanderers's 2014 AFC Champions League campaign during the 2013–14 season.[6]

International career[edit]

Mullen debuted for the Australian national team in a qualifying match for the 2011 AFC Asian Cup against Kuwait in March 2009.[7]
