Socceroo winger Tommy Oar made a surprise return for his Dutch club in their clash with Ajax over the weekend.
Oar, recently ostracised for announcing his intention to leave at the end of the season, returned to action for Utrecht, coming on in the 25th minute of a 1-1 draw at home to Ajax.

Andy Rose played a full match for Seattle Sounders, who defeated Houston Dynamo 1-0 at home in Major League Soccer.
