Tom Rogic says the confidence from winning the treble at club side Celtic has boosted him after he smashed a stunning winner for the Caltex Socceroos in the 3-2 win over Saudi Arabia in World Cup qualification on Thursday night.
He spoke to Fox Sports after the game.
THAT STUNNING WINNER
It wasn’t bad! I thought it [a goal] was coming. We started to get on top in the second half and I just wanted to get the boys on the right way and we got the win which was the most important thing.
We made it a little difficult for ourselves in the first half but we showed our quality and limited them in the second half to too many chances.
HALF TIME TALK
Nothing was said. We just need to stick to our structure and keep playing the way we train and in our philosophy. And we got the rewards in the second half. Everyone was still calm and composed in the sheds at half time and that showed in the second half.
BIG FEW WEEKS AT CLUB AND NOW COUNTRY LEVEL
It’s been fantastic. It’s always a different set up coming into camp and always a proud moment. Coming in off the back of a good season a successful one where you’re in a winning culture and you get used to winning trophies, it can’t but help here.
