Daily Diary: Friday 17 January 2014


FRIDAY 17 JANUARY 2014: Mustafa Amini has played the full 90 minutes in both of Australia’s remaining Group D matches at the AFC Under-22 Championship in Oman. He created the only goal of the game in a 1-0 win over Qatar on Wednesday, before setting-up Tommy Oar’s second goal in a 3-0 win over Jordan today which booked their place in the quarter-finals.

Head of Youth Development Volker Kersting has indicated that Moritz Leitner has been showing remarkable improvements during recent training sessions. He feels the player is developing well under the guidance of Gray Surman and believes that more first-team exposure would help him blossom.
