Jedinak Breaks Palace Record

18 November 2015

After scoring twice for Australia during the international break, Mile Jedinak became the club's all-time leading international goalscorer.

The Socceroos skipper’s goals in the victories against Kyrgyzstan and Bangladesh moved him to nine for his country during his time with the Eagles, surpassing the previous record haul of seven, held by fellow countryman Craig Foster, Aki Riihilahti (Finland) and Ian Walsh (Wales). 

All but two of Jedinak's 11 goals for his national side have come during his time at Palace and he has three in his last three appearances, taking his tally for 2015 up to five, but possibly the most famous of his strikes was when he netted a penalty against Holland at last year's World Cup to become the Eagles' first ever goalscorer at a World Cup finals.

Since arriving at Palace in the summer of 2011 the captain has played 35 times for his country, meaning he is just one shy of another of Riihilahti’s records as the Finn is out in front with his haul of 36 claimed whilst in SE25.
