MEL­BOURNE City’s teen sen­sa­tion Daniel Arzani is within sight of a stun­ning 2018 World Cup un­veil­ing, just five months after mak­ing his A-League de­but.

The Sun­day Tele­graph un­der­stands that Arzani, 19, is firmly on Bert van Marwijk’s radar and is now a strong chance to be part of the ex­tended World Cup squad.
