Rogic’s rocket return | MUNDIAL MORNINGS

MONDAY 10 AUGUST 2015

Socceroo Tom Rogic played his first senior game for his Scottish club Celtic FC in two years overnight. After 2014 provided a disappointing year for Rogic who struggled with a hamstring injury which eventually forced him for Australia’s World Cup squad, Rogic returned in fiery form, scoring an excellent volley half-way through the first half.

“Tom was very good for the first 40 minutes. You can see what kind of talent he is with his touch of the ball and awareness,” Hoops manager Ronny Deila told reporters after the game.

 

“I told him he would never leave this club before he gets a real chance and now he is showing that he deserves that chance.”

When pushed further on Rogic’s future at the club, Delia hinted at the possibility of some Champions League action this season.

“He was on the bench against Baku and he has shown he is an option for our team.”

ARSENAL’S PREMIER LEAGUE BLUES

Arsenal have had an opening weekend to forget, losing 2 – 0 to West Ham United at the Emirates overnight. A sluggish looking Arsenal conceded late in the first half, the Hammer’s striking duo Kouyaté and Zárate providing strong deep runs. The second came just 12 minutes after the break, and taking the hopes of a Gunner opening win with it.

A truly disappointing ninety minutes where failed to provide any really convincing movements, to the disappointment of the Gunners fans.

COUTINHO’S STUNNER

Liverpool took a whole three points away from their clash with x last night, all thanks to an absolute screamer produced by Philippe Coutinho.

(We found hard to describe this absolute peach, so just watch the video below)

The Reds now sit 5th on the Premier League ladder and play Bournemouth next week.
