A Good Captain For Australia

Curtis Good captained Australia Under 20s on Sunday, but could not prevent them from going down 4-1 against Portugal in a friendly.

Good has been part of a 23-man Young Soccerroos' squad for a training camp in Portugal, which included two matches against the host nation.

On Thursday, Good and Co slipped to a 2-1 reversal - although Newcastle's young centre-back was credited with an assist for their goal - and Sunday's second fixture produced the same outcome.

Portugal broke the deadlock through Aladje, but Australia were soon on level terms courtesy of a fine long-range strike from Josh Brillante.

However, goals from Michael Pinto, Tiago Ferreira and Ricardo Pereira put the result beyond any doubt in favour of Portugal.

Former Newcastle youngster, goalkeeper Alex Baird - who is now with Scottish Premier League outfit Dundee - made his Young Soccerroos debut as a second half substitute.
