Goal's A-League Team of the Week: Superstars shine once again

These players stood out in Round 2

Some big names put in some big performances in the second round of the A-League.

From a sublime performance from Sydney FC's Serbian maestro, to another classy showing from Melbourne Victory's Japanese star, the competition's big-name players are quickly proving their worth this season.  

Here's Goal's Team of the Week for Round 2...Who's in yours? 

  1. Liam Reddy

    His four saves were more than any other keeper in Round 2 with his second-half stop against Keisuke Honda a real standout. 
  2. Tom Doyle

    A huge reason Wellington kept their first clean sheet in 16 straight matches making a game-high six interceptions and two crucial blocks. 
  3. Avraam Papadopoulos

    Despite an early yellow card, the centre back read the game brilliantly against the Nix making four interceptions and proving a real asset in the air.
  4. Shane Lowry

    A genuine rock in defence for Glory making a game-high 11 clearances against Victory and brings real steel to a new-look Perth backline. 
  5. Storm Roux

    Took his goal well to temporarily bring Victory level and is linking up with Honda to great effect. 
     
  6. Keisuke Honda

    Speaking of Honda, the Japanese star is the only player to keep his spot from last week after picking up two assists and creating six chances against the Glory. Should have had a goal too if it wasn't for a sharp save from Reddy. 
  7. Milos Ninkovic

    Another assist for the Serbian, who looked a class above throughout the match against the Wanderers. 
  8. Florin Berenguer

    The Melbourne City midfielder created an equal round-high six chances against the Mariners and is proving key to most of his side's attacking plays.  
  9. Craig Goodwin

    The Adelaide winger was a constant menace against the Jets and arguably should have scored before eventually burying a fine header. If he can get a little sharper in the final third, a Socceroos recall could well be on the cards. 
  10. Ross McCormack

    The Scottish attacker inevitably scored against his former side and is quickly bringing a real sharpness to a once very dull Mariners frontline. 
  11. Adam Le Fondre

    Took his early goal well after an initial stop. Never stopped making runs and proving more of a handful for defences than Bobo, even if he might not score quite as many goals as a result.
