Caltex Socceroo stars in top form ahead of Tajikistan

The Caltex Socceroos have begun assembling in Adelaide for Thursday night’s World Cup qualifier against Tajikistan and in great news for coach Ange Postecoglou, the majority of the squad are in strong form.

And none will be more confident than classy playmaker Tom Rogic after his heroics for Celtic in the Scottish Premiership on the weekend.

The 23-year-old gained plaudits around the globe for his last-minute screamer to secure the Hoops' 1-0 win at Kilmarnock.

Rogic turned one defender about 35 yards from goal before driving forward a few metres and smashing an unstoppable, curling drive into the top corner from well outside the box.
