On Saturday evening a masterclass from Craig Goodwin helped Adelaide United progress to the A-League Men Semi-Finals, while fellow Socceroo Connor Metcalfe claimed the Alex Tobin Medal.
At Coopers Stadium, a bumper home crowd helped Craig Goodwin put together a man of the match performance as his goal and assist helped the Reds to a 3-1 victory at home.
Central defender Alexandar Popovic picked up the ball right on halfway and played in behind the 30-year-old winger, who only had to slot his shot past Central Coast Mariners custodian Mark Birighitti before celebrating in front of the Red Army faithful.
10 minutes after half-time had kicked off, Jason Cummings thought he had pulled the Yellow and Navy level in Adelaide. However, minutes later Kusini Yengi's head met the cross of Craig Goodwin to double Adelaide's advantage before the 70th minute.
Elsewhere in the A-League, future St. Pauli and current Melbourne City midfielder Connor Metcalfe claimed the Alex Tobin Medal after an extremely impressive season for the Cityzens where the 22-year-old helped his side to a second successive A-League Men premiership.
Netting two goals this season for Patrick Kisnorbo's side while also putting in countless man of the match performances allowed the Australian to secure a move to German side St Pauli. FC where he will link up with fellow Socceroo midfielder, Jackson Irvine.
Connor Metcalfe and his Socceroo teammates at Melbourne City will face Adelaide United across two legs after the Reds overcame the Mariners 3-1 on the weekend with the first tie scheduled for 7:05 PM this Wednesday evening.
After finishing second this season, Ben Folami and Nick D'agostino's Melbourne Victory will face off against Western United tomorrow evening with kick-off slated for 7:05 pm AEST at AAMI Park.
