Curtis Good has what Australian manager Ange Postecoglou described as a fantastic debut for his country last night in London, when Australia eventually lost the game lost 4-3 to Ecuador, after being 3-0 up at half time.
Curtis Good – in action last night
Curtis was taken off after 68 minutes last night with a slight injury, but he described his first game for Australia as an unbelievable experience:
“You dream about it your whole life,” “It’s the absolute highlight of my career. I felt so confident out there. Thought as a unit we were brilliant.”
“At 3-0, you should never lose a football match,” “When you go to 10 men it’s always hard. It’s not Mitch’s fault thought.” “It’s one of those ones he has to come, otherwise it’s going to be tap in.”
“It’s just unfortunate circumstances.” “But we’ve got to take positives from it. We were brilliant in the first half. We’ve got to build on that.”
“I did something to my hip,”\\ “Hopefully it’s OK. Personally for me having to come off was disappointing.”
This lad seems to be coming in leaps and bounds with first team games, and it’s now extremely likely, not only that he will make the Australian squad for the World Cup in Brazil in the summer, but that he will also be a starter in the side.
