Maclaren seals Olyroos win over Turkey

A lone goal from new Brisbane Roar striker Jamie Maclaren was enough for the Olyroos to defeat Turkey 1-0 in a friendly match in Istanbul overnight. 

The Olyroos are currently preparing for January's Olympic Games qualifiers in Doha and will also face FYR Macedonia on Tuesday in Skopje.

Aurelio Vidmar has a number of promising Australians to select from for the friendly games and it promises to be a tough test for the U23's. 

Maclaren had come off the back of an incredible eight goals in a friendly match for the Roar against a Gold Coast All Stars side. 

The only goal of the game against Turkey came in the 13th minute, with the Olyroos holding on for a 1-0 win.
