Calgary’s Issey Nakajima-Farran made a massive contribution to the Brisbane Roar’s quest to remain the Invincibles of Australian pro soccer — and to become the Invincibles of all Australian team sports. Nakajima-Farran, who signed with the Roar ahead of the 2011-2012 A-League season, scored twice this past weekend as Brisbane scored four first-half, then cruised to a 4-0 win over the Perth Glory. The win gave Brisbane a new Australian record (in all team sports) for longest unbeaten streak — the Roar haven’t lost in 36 games, a streak that goes back to the 2010-2011 campaign. The Roar broke the record of 35 consecutive games undefeated set in 1937 by Eastern Suburbs of the NSW Rugby Football League. Nakajima-Farran scored the Roar’s second and third goals of the game. His first saw him show some fantastic control. Midfielder Thomas Broich lofted a ball over the Glory’s back line, and Nakajima-Farran was able to control the ball after bringing it down with his right foot and then getting a fortuitous bounce off his left. Nakajima-Farran then smashed a shot into the Perth goal. For his second goal, Nakajima-Farran chipped the Perth keeper from a tight angle at the near post. The Calgarian now has three goals in this A-League season.
