Robbie Kruse stars again in Germany

Robbie Kruse’s impressive start to the season in Germany has continued with the Caltex Socceroos winger instrumental in his side’s upset win in the 2.Bundesliga overnight.

The 28-year-old got through a full 90 minutes for VFL Bochum as they stunned third-placed SV Sandhausen 2-0 at home.

Kruse provided the crucial assist for both of his side’s goals with Lukas Hinterseer and Kevin Stoger netting in either half to hand Jens Rasiejewski’s side a vital three points.

The win leaves Bochum in 11th spot on the ladder after 10 matches.

Elsewhere, Brandon Borrello was a late substitute in Kaiserslautern’s 1-1 draw away to St Pauli.
