Curtis Good’s luckless run with injury has continued with the Socceroo defender suffering a setback in pre-season with Newcastle United.
The 22-year-old had surgery on his troublesome hip in February and made his return in the Magpies’ 1-0 friendly win over Gateshead on Friday.

Good made his senior Socceroos debut against Ecuador in March 2014 but was forced off in the second half with a hip-flexor complaint.
The defender was included in the Socceroos’ preliminary 30-man squad for last year’s World Cup but failed to overcome the injury and subsequently missed the tournament.
