Sydney's Petratos sends selection message
Sydney FC made a statement by bringing down Brisbane Roar and young gun Dimitri Petratos hopes he's done the same with an electrifying performance in the A-League win
Sydney FC made a statement by bringing down Brisbane Roar and young gun Dimitri Petratos hopes he's done the same with an electrifying performance in the A-League win.
Young Socceroos striker Petratos scored in the first minute of Sunday's 2-0 win at Jubilee Oval to lay the platform for Sydney to end the Roar's record-breaking 36-game undefeated run. While Petratos, 19, had three goals in sixteen appearances for the club prior to this season, he's had to bide his time before earning his first start of 2011/12 against the Roar. But after an eye-catching performance in which he terrorised Brisbane's defence with pace and skill, Petratos hopes he's given coach Vitezslav Lavicka plenty of food for thought.
"I've been working very hard and I made a statement," Petratos said of Sunday's performance. "Now I've just got to keep working hard. I've been just waiting for my opportunity and it came."
