Caltex Socceroo Chris Ikonomidis has scored his first goal for AGF Aarhus to ensure their win in the Danish Cup overnight, but there was disappointment for James Jeggo in Austria.
In a good night for an Aussie pair in Denmark, Ikonomidis scored the match-sealing goal for AGF in the final minute as they won 3-1 at Holbaek.
