Max Mata, the talented striker from Sligo Rovers and New Zealand national team, is currently experiencing a great moment in his career. His impressive form for his club in the top-tier league of Ireland has earned him a recall to the All Whites squad for the last two international friendly matches against China this March.
At only 22 years old, Max Mata has already become a vital player for Sligo Rovers. His performances on the pitch have been nothing short of outstanding, scoring six goals in eight matches played so far this season. His most notable performance came in the game against UCD where he scored a hattrick. You can watch all his goals for Sligo Rovers so far by clicking here.
Mata’s contribution has been crucial for Sligo Rovers, who currently sit third in the League of Ireland Premier Division. The young striker’s skills and ability to find the back of the net have been instrumental in the team’s success this season. His performances have also caught the attention of the New Zealand national team coach, who has rewarded him with a call-up to the squad.
Mata is already the top scorer of the Irish first-tier league after the eight rounds played; the player that already had experience of playing in Switzerland, Estonia and United States will be looking to guide his team, a very traditional side in Ireland, into winning the league and hopefully also taking the golden boot award of the season.
