Tom’s time to shine?

WORLD CUP RUSSIA 2018

THE Voice reckons Tom Rogic could be pivotal to the Socceroo’s chances of progressing to the World Cup knockout stages.

The attacking midfielder has been in scintillating form for Celtic this season, netting stunning goals in big games as the Scottish giants claimed back-to-back trebles.

Despite his gangly appearance Rogic has superb balance and agility, and has an uncanny knack of conjuring space in the final third and scoring goals from the edge of the box.

It’s a skill that can’t really be taught and is what makes the 25-year-old an enigmatic “game-changer”.

Rogic’s not much of a defender though and rarely lasts the 90 minutes, so he might not play against France when we’ll largely be on the back foot.

But he will undoubtedly feature at some point against Denmark and Peru, when we will require a touch of magic to breach stubborn defences.
