The ex-Brisbane Roar winger, who made the move to Germany in May 2017, scored the opening goal two minutes into the match during his sides 3-1 victory.

In just the second minute, Borrello was in perfect position, controlling the ball from a Osayamen Osawe pass, converting from close to the penalty spot at Fritz-Walter Stadion - the site of Australia's win over Japan at the 2006 FIFA World Cup.
