The Adelaide United custodian faces a five-way battle to be first-choice goalkeeper
Eugue Galekovic is refusing to count his chickens in the battle to be Australia’s number one goalkeeper at the 2014 World Cup.
With the tournament in Brazil less than a year away the Adelaide United custodian is in a five-way skirmish to be Holger Osieck’s first-choice next summer, with veteran Mark Schwarzer, Brad Jones, Mitchell Langerak and Adam Federici all vying for the jersey and the attention of their coach.
The 32-year-old has certainly forced himself into the reckoning after being one of the few Socceroos players to emerge with any credit from a disastrous East Asian Cup campaign but is refusing to look too far ahead, despite the fact much of his opposition are unlikely to feature regularly for their respective clubs next season.
“Obviously there’s a few goalkeepers going around playing and not playing, so in the end it will be Holger’s decision but I can only worry about myself,” Galekovic told four four two.
“I still think it’s a long way away, it’s a whole season away. I’ve got to perform for my club, stay injury free and stay in form and if I do that it’s up to Holger.”
