Brentford B winger Lachlan Brook earned 72 minutes and got an assist for Australia Under-23s in their 3-2 win over Indonesia Under-23s in Tajikistan on Tuesday.
The youngster is part of the Australia group who are in a two-legged tie with Indonesia to secure qualification for the 2022 Under-23 Asian Cup.
Lachlan had a hand in two of the goals on the night as he set up Marc Tokich for the opening goal of the game with an inch-perfect free-kick as his teammate headed home at the far post.
The second goal was even more impressive as Lachlan had a huge hand in the creation of the goal. After coming inside to receive the ball he beat his man before playing an incisive ball forward which was eventually squared into the path of Patrick Wood who slotted home.
Indonesia kept fighting and pulled a goal back in style through Witan Sulaeman before Jacob Italiano restored the two-goal margin when he found the net superbly for Australia to make it 3-1. Indonesia got on the scoresheet once more but it’s the Australians who have the advantage going into the second leg which will be played at 5pm on Friday, once again in Dushanbe.
Having got 72 minutes under his belt, Lachlan will be aiming for even more in the next fixture before returning to England to link up with the young Bees.
