Australian youngster Ben Halloran continued his remarkable form by scoring in a fourth consecutive match for Fortuna Dusseldorf in Germany’s 2.Bundesliga overnight.
Halloran, who will turn 22 during the 2014 Brazil World Cup, made it four goals in four games with a sublime strike which displayed his growing confidence in Fortuna’s 4-0 win over Erzgebirge Aue.
The former Gold Coast United and Brisbane Roar attacker collected Levan Kenia’s pass, before delightfully chipping in off the underside of the bar on 89 minutes.
“Of course, I’m very satisfied,” Halloran told the Fortuna website after the game.
Speaking about his goal, he added: “I acted instinctively. If you have great self-confidence and the team leads 3-0, you can score such a goal.”
Halloran remains uncapped for the Socceroos after having to withdraw from last month’s friendly with Ecuador due to a hip injury.
However, the pacy attacker’s form has him banging down Ange Postecoglou’s door for World Cup selection.1 comment
