Tim Cahill has stepped up his pre-season preparations with Shanghai Shenhua in Spain overnight, while a Socceroo keeper was the star of the show in the Netherlands.
Cahill played more than an hour for his Chinese Super League club in their pre-season friendly against Marbella FC.
Unfortunately for the Socceroo striker there was no joy for the Chinese Super League club, who went down 2-0.
In better news for the club, Cahill will have a new star midfielder providing him service for the upcoming CSL campaign after they signed Colombian international Fredy Guarin from Inter Milan.
In the Netherlands, Brad Jones put in an incredible performance to inspire NEC Nijmegen to a huge win in the Eredivisie.
Jones pulled off a string of fine saves as NEC ran out 2-0 winners against FC Twente thanks to late goals from Anthony Limbombe and Christian Santos.
The result moves the club up to fourth on the Eredivisie ladder and in striking distance of the UEFA Champions League positions.
