Young Caltex Socceroo boosted by Norwegian success

Caltex Socceroo left-back Alex Gersbach is banking on even more success in next Tuesday’s World Cup qualifier against Thailand as he stands on the verge on history with his club in Norway.

The 19-year-old is coming off a dream debut season with Rosenborg BK, the club cruising to the league title last month.

Gersbach made 19 appearances in the Norwegian Tippeligaen and became a key figure late in the season.
