Mile Jedinak's hopes of lifting the FA Cup remain alive after Crystal Palace defeated Tottenham 1-0 to reach the sixth round, while Socceroo rising star Chris Ikonomidis's promising loan spell continues in Italy.
Socceroos captain Jedinak was only involved in the closing stages on Sunday (Monday morning AEDT) after coming on in the 81st minute.
But the Palace skipper could end up lifting one of football's most famous trophies if his team can win three more games.
Palace will face the dangerous Reading away in the next round. The Royals knocked off EPL side West Brom in their Cup tie.
In Serie B, Ikonomidis made his fifth straight appearance for Salernitana on loan from Lazio, as his team drew 1-1 with Crotone.
Ikonomidis completed a full shift for the home side.
