Gislason rewarded for fine form

18 year old flamboyant Charlton Athletic midfielder Rurik Gislason has been rewarded for his fine form in the Charlton reserves of late and will be one of eighteen players travelling to face Bolton Wanderers tomorrow.

Gislason has been producing fine displays in the Charlton reserves recently and scored a good goal as well as setting up another in this midweek's 2-1 win for the reserves agianst their Watford counterparts.

"This is really exiting and Im very happy to be in the squad. It would be even greater to be on the bench tomorrow but we'll just have to wait and see," said Gislason on the official HK Kopavogur website (HK Kopavogur is the club he played for most of his career in Iceland).

About the reserve game he scored in earlier in the week Gislason added: “I had a good game and I should have had a hat-trick. I scored one goal, hit the bar and the ball came down over the line but the referee didnt give it and I should have had a penalty which I would have taken myself of course."

The midfielder is already an Icelandic u-21 international and has reportedly impressed Charlton manager Alan Curbishley with his flair and attacking play.

Its doubtful that Gislason will make the bench tomorrow but being included in the 18-man squad is one of the milestones the midfielder will have to reach before making an appearence for the first team.

Saw a link to this story and this site on the CAFC-Fans messageboard. Where did you get this story? Its not on the official site or anywhere else. Also I've seen Gislason play and he's a very talented little player but needs to get more stronger.
