Taggart looking for consistency to break into Socceroos

-

Amid Brisbane Roar’s early-season inconsistency, there has been but one steadfast variable: Adam Taggart scoring goals.

After five rounds, he’s currently tied first at five goals apiece with Sydney’s Adam Le Fondre in the A-League golden boot race.

Such goal-scoring form has led to many sections of the media deeming him a potential dark horse contender for a Socceroos call-up in the upcoming 2019 AFC Asian Cup.

Speaking days after his brace against Melbourne City, Taggart was keen to refocus attention on his club duties.

“It’s not really something I’m thinking about, I think you need to focus on the right things and that’s performing for Brisbane Roar.

“To get into the squad and start getting back into the Socceroos you need to make sure you’re performing every single week, it can’t just be one good game here and there and one goal here and there.

“I’m not going to be one of those people that says ‘I should be in the Socceroos’ because I don’t agree with that – I think that the squad deserves a lot more respect than that.

“I’ll be working hard every single day and pushing as hard as I can, but it’s for the right reasons and that’s to be performing as best as I can for Brisbane Roar.”

Despite his coyness, it’s hard to argue a Socceroos chance doesn’t exist for Taggart.

Current Socceroo Tomi Juric has looked especially at odds with Graham Arnold’s new attacking style with the centre forward’s hold-up play offering little value in an up-tempo attack.

In attendance at Suncorp Stadium during Australia’s 1-1 draw with South Korea, Taggart denies any contact with Arnold.

“No, I haven’t spoken to Arnie, I wouldn’t necessarily expect to either.”

“It was good to see them play at Suncorp though: they looked very attacking, very structured and it was nice to watch.

“I’ve never had Arnie as a manager but I’ve got a lot of mates who have had him and everyone speaks the world of him.

Any Australian in that side will be enjoying playing under him.”

Taggart next lines up for Brisbane on Friday against Adelaide United at Coopers Stadium.
