Socceroos to use Boyle for inspiration

Martin Boyle’s devastation is being used as inspiration for his Socceroos teammates at the World Cup.

The dynamic winger has been ruled out of the cup in Qatar because of a knee injury, with Melbourne City livewire Marco Tilio summoned as a replacement.

Australia meet reigning champions France in their cup opener on Tuesday night (Wednesday 0600 AEDT).

And veteran winger Mathew Leckie says Boyle’s agony will be sourced for extra motivation.

“We’re all sad for him because he did so much and contributed so much to getting us here,” Leckie told reporters.

“It’s just another reason for us to do it for him.
