Besart Berisha and James Troisi celebrate combining for Victory’s opener against the Reds in Round 14.
Wednesday, 11 January 2017 –
In huge recognition for the Caltex Socceroo Asian Cup Final hero, Troisi has been named alongside the likes of Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain, Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud and Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen.
Troisi earned his spot for his man-of-the-match display in Victory’s 2-0 win over Adelaide United last Saturday night.
The 28-year-old scored a stunning opening goal at Coopers Stadium, curling a 25-metre shot into the top corner of the net.
He followed that up in the second half with an assist, with his free-kick perfectly placed for Besart Berisha to head in Victory’s second.
Troisi has been one of Victory’s best players over the last month and a key figure in the club’s five-match winning streak.
His selection comes just a week after the Hyundai A-League had three players in the squad for the very first time in Victory’s Fahid Ben Khalfallah and Perth Glory duo Diego Castro and Liam Reddy.
Troisi was also named in the Hyundai A-League Team of the Week for Round 14.
