Mustafa Amini continues to push his claims for a berth in Bert van Marwijk’s FIFA World Cup squad after scoring a goal in AGF’s big win in Denmark overnight.
The classy playmaker was part of a ruthless away performance from his side, who crushed Silkeborg 5-2 at JYSK Park to consolidate second spot on the Superliga ladder.
Amini, who has been a consistent performer for AGF all season, rounded out the scoring with the final goal 12 minutes from time.
The goal was Amini’s first of the campaign in 30 appearances.
While he wasn’t a part of van Marwijk’s first squad for friendlies against Norway and Colombia in March, Amini is sure to be in the frame for selection in the preliminary squad which will be named next week.
AGF are next in action on Sunday when they host OB at Ceres Park.
Elsewhere, Aziz Behich played another 90 minutes in Turkey as Bursaspor held on for a 2-1 win over relegation threatened Konyaspor.
Bursaspor’s win was set up in the first half as they raced to a 2-0 lead thanks to goals from Moussa Sow and Ertugrul Ersoy.
With three games left to play the season, the win has all-but assured Bursaspor will avoid the drop to the second tier, moving up to 10th spot and seven point clear of the relegation zone.
