Cahill and Rogic come up trumps, McDonald scores again, while Schwarzer and Federici falter.
Tim Cahill won the Major League Soccer player of the week gong after a two-goal brace for New York Red Bulls against Toronto.
Cahill combined beautifully with Arsenal legend Thierry Henry on both occasions. First, slotting home a left-foot finish off Henry-s cut-back, before leaping in vintage fashion, arriving from deep, to head home the 89th minute.
"It-s what I-ve been looking for all season," he told the New York Times.
"I suppose it-s just rewards of contributing a lot more, and the goals haven-t gone in. For me, it-s not about the goals, it-s about the consistency of this team. And the discipline. And making sure to fill in the holes by not conceding because we-re going to score goals."
Cahill headlined a better week for our Aussies Abroad, with more starts to report across Asia and Europe.
In Scotland, Neil Lennon sung Tom Rogic-s praises after a rare start for Celtic in a rare loss - 3-1 to Motherwell.
"It would have done Rogic the world of good today. I thought he was excellent first half, though he faded a little bit latterly," Lennon said.
"I think he's a bit short in terms of fitness levels which is understandable but once he gets a good pre-season under his belt he should be good to go next year."
Elsewhere in Scotland, Dylan McGowan played a full game at centre-back as Hearts loss 1-0 to lowly Dundee FC.
In England, Mark Schwarzer - whose future at Craven Cottage remains uncertain - played in Fulham-s 1-0 loss to Everton. Brad Jones was on the bench as Liverpool smashed Newcastle United, while Adam Federici was injured and had to watch on as Reading-s relegation was confirmed.

Elsewhere in Europe, there were appearances from Michael Zullo in Holland, a substitute in FC Utrecht-s 2-1 loss to PEC Zwolle; James Holland-s Austria Wien beat Admira 2-0 as they wait to seal their crown and Luke Wilkshire is finally back in Dinamo Moscow-s line-up. The right-back played 90 minutes in a 3-1 win over Mordovia Bursapor.
The highlight in Asian competitions was Ryan McGowan and Erik Paartalu both bagging doubles in China.
McGowan-s Shandong Luneng drew 3-3 with Hangzhou Greentown, while Paartalu-s Tianjin Teda won 3-2 against Wuhan Zall.
