A-League Soccer grand final Australia’s men’s top level soccer Brisbane Roar defeated the Western Sydney Wanderers 2-1 at Lang Park.
Brisbane became the most successful team in the league’s nine-year history when they sealed their third championship in four years.
The Roar’s Melbourne Victory-bound striker Besart Berisha left it until the 85th minute to equalise, sending the match into extra-time. Roar claimed the 2012 crown with a late penalty goal after reeling in a 1-0 deficit against Perth Glory.
The Brisbane Roar celebrates after they defeated the Western Sydney Wanderers in extra time to win the 2014 A-League grand final in Brisbane.
Roar coach Mike Mulvey agreed that they were now the A-League benchmark.
“It was never in doubt,” he smiled.
“This club has in its DNA to never give up. They had that long before I arrived.
“This is some achievement by this club. Now we are the mighty Roar.”
The A-League soccer was established in 2004 as a successor to the National Soccer League and commenced in August 2005.
