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. 

The Aussie's heroics helped NAC pull off a fabulous 2-0 win for his new club, a result that was the talk of the Dutch league this weekend. 

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.
