Leckie stars in Bavarian derby

Socceroo Mathew Leckie shrugged off recent injury concerns to put in a star turn for FC Ingolstadt 04 in their 2-0 victory over Greuther Furth in the Bavarian derby on Sunday.

Leckie was instrumental in both goals, scoring the first (62') and setting up the second (81’), proving a constant menace for defenders during his 90 minutes on the park.

Earlier this month the 23-year-old, who was one Australia’s best at the World Cup, looked set for an indefinite spell on the sidelines with a persistent abdominal injury.

But the former Adelaide United star was back to his scintillating best on the weekend, converting a solo run before laying one on for midfielder Pascal Gross on the edge of the box.

The victory at Audi Sportpark lifts the Bundesliga 2. club up to fifth on the table.

Leckie’s match-winning performance will be welcome news for the Socceroos after he was named for next month's friendlies in the lead up to the Asian Cup.

Awesome Leckie ! I've got a feeling he'll develop into possibly the best striker in the whole world ! Not only that, our other players are all getting better. Clean sheets most of the time Ryan, our backs are becoming a Herd of Good, Brilliante, Wright and terrific Smith. Our forwards Juric, Kruse, Gameiro and Halloran.
Tim Cahill you better score more best ever world cup goals if you want to keep your spot in the new look Socceroos under Ange. Happy are those who believe without seeing results !
I'm confident that my totally outrageously positive prediction will come true !

Fifa rankings what rubbish. We were ranked 14 at one stage and that team has nothing on this team.

The Socceroos ranked 79 (lowest ever for a long time thanks Holger) will be the number 1 team by the end of 2014 ! Yeah you heard me all you negative commentators / 'supporters'.

This is the best Socceroos team ever ! This team will soon be the fastest, most skillful, exciting and unbelievable team the world has ever seen !
