Fringe Caltex Socceroos keeper Mark Birighitti stole the show with an incredible double stop for his new club NAC Breda in the Dutch Eredivisie as they pulled off a famous 2-0 win away on Sunday.
The former Newcastle Jets keeper, signed from EPL outfit Swansea City in the August window, saved a penalty against Feyenoord at the De Kuip stadium.
Then, @MarkBirazz pulled off a second superb stop to keep out the goal bound rebound to keep his newly promoted side in the contest.

Interestingly, both keepers were Aussies with Feyenoord featuring WA-born Socceroo Brad Jones in goal.
NAC are 11th on the ladder in the 18-team league.
