THEO MARKELİS, VİCTORY'NİN GÖZÜNÜ KORKUTTU

FFA, Avustralya Futbol Federasyonu resmi internet sitesinde çıkan haberde Anadoluspor hücum oyuncusu Theo Markelis hakkında çıkan yazıyı aynen yayınlıyorum.
Yazıda, 24 Ağustos Çarşamba akşamı FFA Kupası 16 tur maçını geçen yılın FFA Kupası şampiyonu olan Melbourne Victory ile oynayacak olan Anadoluspor'un başarılı hücum oyuncusu Theo Markelis'in Melbourne City karşısında attığı golün Victory takımı için tehtit unsuru olduğundan bahsedildi.

FFA Cup title-holders Melbourne Victory will find Hume City to be a much tougher proposition on their home ground, according to winger Theo Markelis.
Last year, Victory qualified for the FFA Cup final with a 3-0 win over Hume at AAMI Park with the NPL Victoria club's home ground ABD Stadium being rejected as a possible venue.
While Hume gave a decent account of themselves, Victory eventually cruised into the tournament's decider with late goals from Kosta Barbarouses and Jason Geria following Besart Berisha's first-half penalty.
Football Federation Australia has accepted ABD Stadium for this year's Round of 16 tie and Markelis reckons Hume will have a greater shot at advancing on Wednesday thanks to genuine home ground advantage.

"In all honesty, I think it does make a difference because prior to the semi-final in the FFA Cup last year we had played them at our ground in a friendly game and they had basically their full squad playing as well, and we nearly beat them," Markelis told Goal Australia.
"We lost 4-3 in the end. We're strong at our ground."
Hume have notched 10 wins, one draw and one loss at home in NPL Victoria so far this season, while Markelis and Co. are on an 11-game winning streak in all competitions at ABD Stadium this year, including their penalty shootout triumph against Marconi in the FFA Cup Round of 32.
Markelis reckons opponents struggle with the size of the pitch in Melbourne's north.
"We've got probably one of the biggest grounds in Victoria… we play good on that big ground and that's the style of football we play - always keeping the ball and having a big ground is always to our advantage," the 24-year-old said.

On Tuesday, Hume claimed another scalp at home with Markelis' stunning 25-yard strike handing Dean Hennessey's side a 1-0 win over Melbourne City in a friendly.
It's the type of exposure the former Valencia youth player and Victory attacker needs.
"I'm pretty happy I scored a goal like that against Melbourne City. I'm trying to put myself back out there.
"That's where I want to be, I want to be at the highest level and if I'm scoring goals like that it's a possibility of getting there," he said.
Markelis, who lines up on the left for Hume, has scored 16 goals in 40 NPL Victoria matches since joining the club in May 2015.
