No Interest: A-League Men Fans Prefer to Avoid Discussion About Football

Fornaroli’s Four-Goal Haul Should Put Him on Arnold’s Radar for Socceroos DutyA sensational four-goal haul from Melbourne Victory’s Bruno Fornaroli in their 4-3 win over the Western Sydney Wanderers should make the veteran an automatic selection for the Socceroos at the upcoming Asian Cup in Qatar.His remarkable display on Sunday, in oppressively hot conditions, showcased the 36-year-old’s exceptional ability to consistently find scoring opportunities, making him a strong candidate for the national team. Fornaroli’s goals came in a variety of forms, from a rebound volley to a powerful headed effort, highlighting his versatility and experience.On the other hand, the Wanderers put up a strong fight, with their Swedish import Marcus Antonsson also delivering a brace. However, a disallowed goal due to offside and a late surge were not enough to secure a victory for them.The match highlighted the need for a forward like Fornaroli in the Australian squad, given the injury to Brandon Borrello. Additionally, another away victory saw Ross Aloisi’s team securing a 2-0 win over Adelaide United at a waterlogged Coopers Stadium.Amid such thrilling action on the field, it’s unfortunate that the lack of online interest in the A-Leagues has been a recurring issue. Nonetheless, the standout performances from players like Fornaroli should help reignite the excitement and attention around Australian club football.
