Key Caltex Socceroo Tom Rogic heads to Honduras on a high after helping his club Celtic make history over the weekend.
The Australian was subbed on for the final 30 minutes as Celtic broke their own 100-year-old British domestic unbeaten record as they made it an 63 games without defeat with a 4-0 away victory over St Johnstone.
And with no injury concerns reported around Rogic, he'll fly to Central America buoyed by his own form and his club's amazing run in recent times.
Rogic has also been identified as a dangerman by Honduras.
“Yesterday we were watching the Australian who plays for Celtic and we think he is a good player and we hope to play well against Australia,” Honduras defender Henry Figueroa told the local Diez newspaper last week.
"We know we are playing a team that is of the highest level.
"We are going to work hard as usual and we hope to deal them a blow on Nov. 10."
