Arzani’s rapid rise has shocked us all, says teammate

Melbourne City defender Scott Jamieson says he’s shocked at the “rapid rise”of teammate Daniel Arzani.

The 19-year-old starred for the Socceroos after coming on in the 68th minute, going close on numerous occasions to breaking the deadlock against Denmark.

Speaking on Melbourne Breakfast, Jamieson said Arzani’s rise through the Melbourne City ranks turned heads at the club.

“We’ve all seen him day in and day out and know what he can do,” he said.

“It probably wasn’t expected that he’d be in the national team at the World Cup but I think it’s fantastic that we give players a chance regardless of their age. His ability has backed that up and he’s been great.

“Can he be the match winner against Peru? Let’s wait and see.”
