Aussie Mustafa Amini played a full 90 minutes overnight in the Danish Superliga but wasn't able to inspire his AGF side to a win.
The fringe Caltex Socceroo was in the midfield for AGF Aarhus in their league clash away at fourth-placed Sonderjyske.
But the home side scored early and added two more in the second half for a comfortable 3-0 victory.
It was a second consecutive defeat for Amini's side who now sit 10th in the 14-team league.
Aarhus next host fifth placed Odense on Monday morning.
Amini, a former Central Coast Mariner, is hoping to force his way into the Caltex Socceroos for their crucial upcoming FIFA World Cup qualifiers with the squad announced in coming weeks.
