Burgess and Australia Out of Asian Cup
Friday, 2nd Feb 2024 18:24

Blues centre-half Cameron Burgess came on as a late sub as Australia were beaten 2-1 by South Korea after extra-time in the quarter-finals of the Asian Cup in Qatar.

Burgess, 29, picked up his fifth full cap and he made his second appearance of the competition in the 86th minute as the Socceroos sought to see out a 1-0 victory.

However, the South Koreans levelled via a 96th-minute penalty to take the game into extra-time in which they secured their place in the semi-final against Jordan on Tuesday, Australia having been reduced to 10 men following Aiden O’Neill’s dismissal.

Burgess will now return to Town and will be available for next Saturday’s home game against West Brom.

KM has a difficult decision to make. Does he keep Fridge or bring Burgess back in?

Good to get him back…..Town have missed him at the back

Can't see how we've missed him when the defence has conceded less goals in the games that matter (championship) . Edmundson might not be as popular as Burgess but anyone who's played the game can see he's a class above Burgess who's a very good squad player.

Edmundson keeps his place imo. He’s better with his feet and deserves the shirt. Burgess will have benefitted from his international experience.

We really need him back, Edmundson had a shocker today and against Maidstone.
