Caltex Socceroos hopeful Brandon Borrello started and provided a crucial assist in his side’s much-needed win in the 2.Bundesliga overnight.
Borrello got through a full 90 minutes for Kaiserslautern and set up the opening goal as they secured a 2-1 victory away to Eintracht Braunschweig.
The winger teed-up striker Lukas Spalvis in just the fifth minute before the Lithuanian doubled the visitors’ advantage 10 minutes before half-time.

Elsewhere, Robbie Kruse got through 81 minutes as Bochum suffered a 2-0 defeat at Dynamo Dresden.
In Holland, Brad Jones started but couldn’t prevent Feyenoord from falling to a 1-0 loss away to VVV Venlo.
