Aussies Abroad: Scottish Socceroos star in all-round successful weekend

It was a vastly successful round of action for our Aussies Abroad, with Socceroos playing their part in positive results throughout Europe, Asia and America. 

Our weekend wrap begins in Scotland, where Martin Boyle and Tom Rogic impressed yet again. 

You can watch their highlights in the player above, or read on to catch up on all of the latest Aussies Abroad updates. 


 Yet again it was a weekend for our Scotland-based Socceroos, as Martin Boyle scored again for Hibernian and Tom Rogic chipped in with another Celtic assist. 

It wasn't a third-straight win for Hibs to kick off the season, but they maintained their unbeaten commencement to the campaign after a 2-2 draw with Dundee FC. 

Yet again Boyle was a standout performer, equalising for his side from the penalty spot and creating plenty of chances for his teammates. 

While Hibernian are top of the Scottish Premiership, Ange Postecoglou's Celtic are nipping at their heels.

The Hoops registered their sixth-straight victory in all competitions with an emphatic 6-0 win over St Mirren.

After starting four matches in a row, Rogic was introduced off the bench 67th minute, and after going close himself, chipped in with an assist for his side's sixth. 

Moving across to England, Harry Souttar's Stoke City continued their bright start to the season with a 1-0 win over Nottingham Forest.

The Potters are equal on points with the competition leaders Fulham, with three wins and a draw to kick off the campaign.

Blackpool meanwhile were unable to grab their first three points of the campaign, but yet again showed plenty of fight in coming from two goals down to earn a 2-2 draw with Bournemouth. 

Kenny Dougall played a full game for the Seasiders. 

In League One, Massimo Luongo enjoyed his first Sheffield Wednesday start of the season during a 2-0 win over Rotherham that sent the Owls into top spot of the competition.

Over in Germany, Ajdin Hrustic was handed his first start of the Bundesliga season, playing 80 minutes in Eintracht Frankfurt's 0-0 stalemate at home to Augsburg.

While his side were unable to make the most of any chances they created, the Socceroos midfielder impressed many, as he was employed in a deep-lying midfield role. 

In France, fellow Socceroos midfielder Denis Genreau made his second appearance for Toulouse in a 4-2 win over Dijon.

Genreau was introduced in the 79th minute as his side continued their unbeaten start to the campaign. 

In Denmark, Awer Mabill was introduced on the hour mark during a 3-0 for Midtjylland over Silkeborg, while Lawrence Thomas started in SønderjyskE's 2-0 defeat to FC København.

Trent Sainsbury played a full match for Belgian outfit FC Kortrijk as they bounced back from consecutive defeats with a 2-0 win over St. Truiden. 

Meanwhile, Daniel Arzani played 73 minutes on his competitive debut for Lommel SK, as they come out 1-0 victors over Royal Excel Mouscron.

In the Dutch Eredivisie, Danny Vukovic was an unused sub as NEC Braga seucred a 2-0 win over PEC Zwolle - their first three points of the season. 

In J.League action, Adam Taggart played 64 minutes as Cerezo Osaka returned to winning ways with a 3-1 triumph over Yokohama. 

Mitch Duke continues to be the lucky charm for his new club Fagiano Okayama, who made it three wins from three since signing the Socceroos striker with a 1-0 win over Omiya Ardija.

Duke started and was withdrawn late in that clash, as was the case with Brad Smith across the Pacific, whose Seattle Sounders continued their impressive MLS form with a 2-1 victory against Colombus Crew.
