Celtic star Tom Rogic helps Australia break impressive world record
Celtic star Tom Rogic was part of the Australia side that set a new world record yesterday.
The Aussies beat Oman 3-1 in Doha to become the first side to win 11 straight World Cup qualifiers.
Graham Arnold’s side have scored 35 goals and conceded just three in the run which stretched back to September 2019.
While the opposition haven’t always been great – the Aussies deserve extra credit given they haven’t played a single game in Australia since late 2019.
Rogic has only recently come back into the fold, but has played in each of their last three victories, and laid on a goal for Hibernian star Martin Boyle yesterday.
Rogic and Australia can now build on record
Australia are now sitting pretty at the top of Group B – with their 9 point tally also matched by Saudi Arabia.
Kyogo Furuhashi’s Japan are next, but have just three points to show for their first three matches.
The top two teams from each group will qualify for Qatar with third place entering a play-off.
That makes Tuesday’s meeting between Japan and Australia a big one – and not just for Celtic fans.
Kick-off for that one is at 11:14am Scottish time. And no, we’re not sure why either.
