Audio Interview: James Troisi
Listen to this exclusive audio interview with young star James Troisi
A little over 12 months ago, not many people knew of James Troisi, who by then was playing reserve team football at English Premier League club Newcastle United. As a left-sided midfielder, Troisi was brought into the Qantas Under 23 team, but such was his impact that he has quickly risen up the ranks to the national team.
A promising off-season saw Troisi in line for a first team call up at Newcastle, but with results not going their way and the manager under pressure that call up never came, even when Kevin Keegan took over mid-season. While his club career is in a state of limbo at the present moment after being released by Newcastle, Troisi-s national team adventure continues on in earnest and put in a solid showing against Ghana last Friday night.
The South Australian talks to David Cooper about his background and how he came to be at Newcastle; his release from Newcastle; on his next club move; the Ghana match; his confidence, the Olyroos, what-s in stall for the next month and of course the upcoming match against Iraq in Brisbane.
