Aussies Abroad: Genreau scores Toulouse's title-sealing goal

Denis Genreau found the back of the net in the 78th minute to seal a 2-1 win for Toulouse and spark title celebration scenes in the South of France. 

Before lining up to face Nîmes last night, Denis Genreau had only netted one goal prior for his French club. 

However, the Australian has netted one of the most important goals for Les Violets as his strike against Nîmes secured the Ligue 2 trophy for his side and capped off an extremely impressive season for the young midfielder. 

After only being on the field for a matter of minutes, the 22-year-old midfielder was presented with a golden opportunity to net his second goal of this season. Despite his first strike on goal being blocked by the Nîmes backline, there was nothing Lucas Dias could do as he watched Genreau seal Ligue 2 for Les Violets. 

Speaking to LaDepche post-match, Genreau was jubilated with his achievement overseas. 

"It was perfect, I scored with my first touch it's a dream, we deserved this victory," Genreau said to LaDepche

"To finish as champions is icing on the cake, frankly, it's magnificent in front of my parents. 

"We wrote a page in the history of this club and tonight, we're going to party." 

Elsewhere in Europe, Tom Rogic made a short 15-minute cameo for Ange Postecoglou's Celtic as they all but wrapped up the Scottish Premiership with a 4-1 victory over fellow Socceroo Nathaniel Atkinson's Hearts at Celtic Park.

Coming on in the 77th minute, Rogic was able to help his side net the final goal of the evening against Hearts, and it now means that Celtic have to lose their final two league games and forfeit a goal difference of +22 if they are to not claim the Scottish Premiership title. 

For another Socceroo across the globe in Australia, Nicholas D’Agostino's Melbourne Victory picked up a key 4-1 win over Sydney FC as the 24-year-olds side now sits atop of the A-League Men ladder. 

It was D’Agostino who got the party started for the Victory in Sydney as his solo run from halfway finished with the attacker blasting his shot past fellow Socceroo Andrew Redmayne

Shortly after netting the opener for his Melbourne club, again the 22-year-old was allowed to pierce through the Sky Blue backline and he won a foul on the edge of the box which allowed Jake Brimmer to double Victory's lead inside half an hour. 

The result puts Nicholas D’Agostino and Melbourne Victory in strong contention for the A-League Men's Premiership with both fellow Victorian clubs, Western United and Melbourne City still having to play their respective final matches.
