Caltex Socceroos defender Alex Gersbach has helped his new side Lens progress to the French Cup Qiuarter-Finals overnight.
Gersbach, on loan from Norwegian club Rosenborg, played the full 90 minutes as second-tier Lens secured a 1-0 upset win over Ligue 1 outfit Troyes.

It was Gersbach’s second start for the club since making the switch just over a fortnight ago.
