Sydney FC young gun Tyson Savas netted a stunning five goals for Australia’s U-16 men’s team in Mongolia on Wednesday as Peter Cklamovski’s side commenced their 2018 AFC U-16 Championship Qualifiers in fantastic fashion.Savas found the back of the net in the eighth, 27th, 34th, 42nd and 50th minutes of the match to play a huge part in helping Cklamovski’s charges defeat hosts Mongolia 10-1 in at the MFF Football Centre in Ulaanbaatar.
Tristan Hammond, Noah Botic, Cameron Peupion, Jaiden Kucharski, and Birkan Kirdar also found the back of the net for Australia U-16 as the team rocketed to the top of the 2018 AFC U-16 Championship Qualifiers (Group I) standings.
Should the Joeys side finish top of Group I in Mongolia they will book their place at the 2018 AFC U-16 Championships which will be held in Malaysia next year. A second-place finish may also suffice – the five best group runners-up will also advance to the Championships proper.
Australia will play their next match in the qualification phase against Cambodia on Friday (22 September) afternoon. Cklamovski’s side will then face Vietnam on Sunday (24 September) afternoon.
