Kuol Discusses World Cup Debut As He Vows To Continue Working Hard



Garang Kuol made his World Cup debut in Australia’s 4-1 defeat against France last night. The 18-year-old came on for lone Aussie goalscorer Craig Goodwin in the 73rd minute.

The appearance was Kuol’s 2nd cap for the Socceroos. He made his debut against Chris Wood and New Zealand during the September international break. In entering the match last night, Kuol became the 9th youngest player in World Cup history.

France’s dominance after Australia took the early lead continued after Kuol’s entrance. France were pushing for more goals which meant little joy for the teenager up front with few touches.

After the match, Kuol spoke to CodeSports about his experience. The Shields Gazette has published the following from the young attacker.

“To see six-foot-four people as quick as me just shows the big difference between me and some of those players. Only hard work is going to mean making it to that level. Good to get that taste.

“It felt pretty long chasing France around! When I came on I was just excited to show what I can do. I think it’s something I need to look at with the coaches to see how I can get on the ball more.”

Next up for the Aussies is Tunisia, who battled Denmark to a scoreless draw yesterday. Hopefully, Garang will get another opportunity to shine this Saturday. While his debut was frustrating, it’ll be a valuable learning experience.

Kuol was also asked about his pending move to Newcastle United in January. He revealed that he continues to receive a lot of support from the Toon army. He even stated that he wears black and white shoes in support of his future club.

It also looks like Harry Kane’s scan on his ankle has shown no damage according to multiple reports. England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford also revealed that Kane took part in today’s session ahead of Friday’s match against the USA.

    I thought it was a pen too Clint.

    Seating update: stadium remains mostly full with the exception of the middle of the east stand (if I put it in SJP terms when watching on TV) which seems to maybe 60% full in the lower tier. I am assuming they are mainly the corporate/posh seats.

    The best first half in this competition I have seen. Canada unlucky to be behind. Durham is close to Newcastle isn’t it? Isn’t the Canada head coach from there?

    Anyone else get any interesting ads on this site?
    I’ve just had a lovely pop-up from Tatiana, aged 32. Much better than the air fryer ones.

    The BBC has NEVER been on the Sky Go app because they want you to use Iplayer. It appears when you click the record tab so you can remotely set your box to record BBC programs.

    Genuinely can’t log in using my phone (like I usually do). Will try the laptop instead. Cheers for letting me know.

    By the way, am I top of the league? If I am I didn’t know that. It’s a first for me and definitely won’t last long 🙂

    Belgium are finished as a top international team.
    The centre backs are way past it.
    Canada have been far superior in every area except up front.
    Alphonso Davies is an absolute beast.
    Sign him up Amanda!
