    Phoenix striker Ben Old has declared himself ready to step up in the event of a penalty shootout

    Phoenix striker Ben Old has declared himself ready to step up in the event of a penalty shootout to decide Saturday's A-League semifinal against Melbourne Victory


    Teams head into the second leg of the tie drawn at nil-all, with the match to go to extra time or penalty shootouts if it remains even.

    Old says the team has increased practicing from the spot.



    The match is just a few thousand tickets away from selling out.
