Australian Football: Boyle sets sights on Qatar

Martin Boyle is hoping to become a Socceroos legend by helping them to the World Cup finals in Qatar later this year.

Australia are priced at 500/1 to win the World Cup but still have to qualify for the showpiece with the UAE and Peru standing in their way.

Boyle bang in form

Boyle is Scotland born and bred but is eligible to play for the Socceroos thanks to his father who was born in Syndey. He made his debut in 2018 and has not looked back since.

The 29-year-old winger has been a revelation when scoring five goals in 16 appearances, including three in this World Cup qualifying campaign. Boyle is now hoping to keep his good form going to take Australia to Qatar.

"The idea of qualifying for a World Cup considering where I've come from in my career, I'd say that's a bit surreal," Boyle told reporters. "Obviously making the change, I don't regret anything that I've done and they've made me feel welcome.

"I like to think every time I've put on the jersey I've given 100 per cent and I've done quite well.

"These games coming up, this is where you can definitely make yourself a legend and put your name in the books."

Scotland miss out

Boyle watched on last week as Scotland miss out on the World Cup when losing to the Ukraine in their play-off encounter.

"I've got a few old teammates that I played with at Hibs that were in the squad," Boyle added. "Obviously it wasn't an ideal situation for them but the way Ukraine played, they wanted it more.”
