Curtis Good is doing very well on loan at Dundee United in the Scottish Premier League, just like he did well last year at this time when he was on loan at Bradford City, and they reached the Capital One Cup Final at Wembley, before losing to Swansea.
Curtis Good – playing well at Dundee United
Curtis has already played 13 times for the Australia U20 side and twice for the U23 side, and he has been given his first call-up for Australia for their friendly game against Ecuador next week in London.
Good is a solid young player, and in his only appearance for Newcastle at Morecambe in the League Cup in August, he had a good game, but he needs regular first team games to improve, and he’s getting them north of the border through the end of the season.
And if Curtis does well next week and impresses in training, there’s a decent possibility he could make Australia’s World Cup side in the summer.
And the 20 year-old is certainly one for the future – both for Newcastle and Australia.
The Australian manager, Ange Postecoglou, had this to say about his squad for the World Cup this summer:
“Selection in the final squad for the World Cup is still very much an open door.”
Here is the Australian squad for the friendly next week:
Oliver Bozanic, Tim Cahill, Jason Davidson, Ivan Franjic, Curtis Good, Ben Halloran, Chris Herd, James Holland, Mile Jedinak, Brad Jones, Mitchell Langerak, Matthew Leckie, Massimo Luongo, Ryan McGowan, Matthew McKay, Mark Milligan, Tommy Oar, Tommy Rogic, Matt Ryan, Adam Sarota, Matthew Spiranovic, Dario Vidosic, Luke Wilkshire.
It would be great if Curtis picks up his first senior cap for Australia in the game at Milwall next Wednesday night.
The former Melbourne Heart player is just one of many of Newcastle’s young players out on loan through the end of the season. and they include Jame Tavernier and Haris Vuckic at Rotherham, Mehdi Abeid at Panathinaikos, Romain Amalfitano at Dijon, Shane Ferguson at Birmingham and Adam Campbell and Conor Newton at St. Mirren.
