What has Caltex Socceroos midfield sensation Tom Rogic got in common with England's rising star Dele Alli and James Rodriguez of Real Madrid?
Rogic has won selection in this week's EA Sports’ FIFA Team of the Week alongside some of world football’s biggest names.
The Celtic star was one of the standouts as the Socceroos booked their spot in the next stage of FIFA 2018 World Cup qualifying with big wins over Tajikistan and Jordan over the last week.
The Bhoys midfielder – who scored one of the goals of the season just before he flew to Australia – continued his scoring blitz in the green and gold.
He scored a brace off the bench in the 7-0 drubbing of Tajikistan a week ago – including a classy finish with the outside of his left foot – while he scored the fourth in the 5-1 win over Jordan on Tuesday night.
And it’s not just his goals that caught the eye with the 23-year-old dangerous whenever he got on the ball, proving he will be a key player on Australia’s road to Russia.
Rogic’s reward for his exceptional week is a spot in EA Sports’ FIFA Team of the Week alongside the likes of Real Madrid and Colombia star James Rodriguez, England young gun Dele Alli and Leicester City marvel Riyadh Mahrez.
