Behich scores again in Turkey

Caltex Socceroos fullback Aziz Behich has continued his stunning run of goal-scoring form in Turkey, scoring a stoppage-time equaliser for Bursaspor overnight.

Behich slide in at the far post to turn in a cross from the right, producing a brilliant finish across the keeper before racing off to celebrate.


The goal was Bursaspor’s second in four minutes as they produced late heroics to snatch a 2-2 draw with Kasimpasa.

The 26-year-old left-back is enjoying a golden period in front of goal, with three goals in his last four matches for Bursaspor.

The draw sees Bursaspor remain in fifth spot on the Turkish Super Lig ladder, in between Besiktas and Fenerbache.

Behich’s hot-streak in front of goal is great news for Caltex Socceroos boss Ange Postecoglou ahead of the upcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup intercontinental play-off against Honduras.

Australia will play the first leg in San Pedro Sula on November 11 (AEDT), before the return leg in Sydney on Wednesday, November 15.
