Five A-League Men personalities as movie stars

-

Footballers are always known for their distinct personalities. Let’s take a look at which A-League Men personalities would suit the box office.

  1. Daniel Sturridge – Adonis Creed

Alike Creed, Sturridge carries a wealth of football experience.

With major successes under his belt, slip-ups have caused the veteran’s career to veer off path. The former England international is out to prove the doubters wrong and show he still has it.

Reputation remains important amidst vast titles and trophies. The highs and lows of the Brit’s career have impacted his reputation and performance with the media always quick to cover. To capture the glory he desires, Sturridge has landed in Australia in an effort to be crowned champion once more.

2. Matt Simon – Captain America

A real leader of the Mariners, Simon has worked his way up to the top becoming an iconic Central Coast figure.

Donning the yellow arm-band when needed, his experience in tough circumstances has allowed the Wizard of Woy Woy to lead his men to victory. Top goal-scorer for the Mariners last season with 10, he sealed victories for the Mariners on most occasions.

Always holding the group together, the Mariners forwards become disorganised without Simon’s presence. The Coastie is a perfect role model for the young Mariners academy rookies entering the league.

3. Archie Goodwin – Luke Skywalker

As did Ani, Goodwin was scouted at a young age and thrown right into a superior field of players. Fending for his life against grown men, the rookie is trying to prove his worth and fight for a starting position at the Jets.

Following successful outings defeating opponents and making a name for himself, Goodwin has reigned in the support and belief of the Newcastle community that he may just be the chosen one.

A screamer against champions Melbourne City last season proved the force is great with this one and only time will tell if he develops into a future leader.

4. Joshua Cavallo – Romeo

It takes a unique individual to stand-up and break societal barriers because of the strength of their love. Coming out as one of the first openly-gay male in professional top-flight football shows Cavallo is willing to risk his career for something he loves and values.

Not suggesting Cavallo would die for his love of football, but his story will be one for the ages. The 22-year-old inspired not only the footballing world but many individuals who may feel suppressed to express themselves.

5. Tomi Juric – John Wick

A real assassin of the league, you can never count him out. Set-backs are common, though what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Silence and being in uncertainty over a return strikes fear for when he will rise to fight.

An injury-plagued couple of seasons, opponents will be dreading his return to the field for Macarthur. Nine goals from 10 appearances for Adelaide United last season struck fear into the forthcoming opposition.

Reports are Juric has relished the pre-season when most players fear it. Living in the dark for now, ready to take his next victim.
