Meanwhile, Brent McGrath has scored his firs goal for Esbjerg fB with a 90th minute equaliser in his side's 2-2 draw with Nordsjaelland. 



The former Adelaide United striker was on hand at the back post to head home a corner. 

Fellow Aussie Awer Mabil manged to play 90 minutes and set up Esbjerg's opening goal, but the 2-2 draw means Esbjerg still remain bottom of the Danish league.



McGrath wasn't the only Aussie on target with 23-year-old Brisbane born Kenny Dougall striking for Sparta Rotterdam in the 81st minute as they drew 2-2 with Roda JC.


Dougall was joined by Craig Goodwin as they both played the full 90 minutes for Sparta.

Elsewhere, Tom Rogic scored a brilliant opener and lifted the Scottish League Cup with Celtic. Both Adam Federici and Brad Smith started for Bournemouth in their 3-1 loss to Arsenal. James Jeggo played a full 90 minutes in Sturm Graz's 2-1 win away to Rapid Wien in Austria.
