Caltex Socceroos defender Milos Degenek has helped his side to secure a crucial result in Germany but there was disappointment for another Aussie in Denmark this morning (Tuesday).
Degenek’s 1860 Munich outfit drew 1-1 at home against Kaiserslautern in Bundesliga2.
The 22-year-old played 90 minutes at the back for 1860 less than a week after playing a full game in Bangkok for the Caltex Socceroos against Thailand in a World Cup qualifier.
Croatian international Ivica Olic gave 1860 an early lead before Zoltan Stieber equalised for the visitors a minute before half-time.
The draw sees Degenek’s side move one point clear of the relegation zone and up into 14th spot.
The result meant 1860 avoided defeat for just the sixth time in 13 matches so far this season.
Meanwhile in Denmark, Awer Mabil’s Esbjerg endured a tough night, beaten 3-0 by Silkeborg.
The former Adelaide United flyer played a full match for the visitors, who were on the back foot as soon as Robert Skov gave Silkeborg the lead inside four minutes.
Esbjerg remain rooted to the foot of the Superliga ladder with just two wins from 17 matches.Fellow Aussie Brent McGrath wasn’t included in the squad for the visitors.
