Soccers debut for Portsmouth striker Kusini Yengi is imminent…

After a goal-filled transition to England, uncapped striker Kusini Yengi is being considered for a first-ever Socceroos call-up for this month’s World Cup qualifiers against Bangladesh and Palestine.

Graham Arnold, the coach of the Socceroos, will choose his team on Thursday in Melbourne for the qualification window.

Additionally, according to AAP, Yengi, 24, is anticipated to be considered for a debut after settling in well with Portsmouth.

After joining Pompey during the A-League Men off-season, the former Western Sydney Wanderers and Adelaide United forward has five goals in eight appearances.

Yengi’s appearances in League One and Portsmouth’s cup competitions have seen him score once every forty minutes on average.

Yengi was supposed to play in the September window friendly against Mexico, but an ankle ailment kept the gifted striker out of action, according to Arnold.

Yengi, who is also qualified for South Sudan and England, was out of action for about two months for Pompey, the top-ranked team in League One.

But if he survives Portsmouth’s match against Charlton this Saturday, his inclusion will give Arnold a welcome lift.

Apart from the hardworking Mitchell Duke, Yengi would provide the Socceroos with an additional dimension up front before their journey to the Asian Cup in January.

Prior to the November window, when Australia is anticipated to win two matches, Arnold had no significant injury concerns.
