Socceroos left-sided utility Craig Goodwin has scored for Sparta Rotterdam in a comeback 2-2 draw against Willem II in Dutch football's top-flight competition.
Willem II looked like ending their five-match winless run in the Eredivisie when a Fran Sol Ortiz double put them in control in Rotterdam.
However, goals from former Adelaide United star Goodwin in the 69th minute and Thomas Verhaar - in the 90th - salvaged a draw for the hosts.
The 24-year-old Goodwin came on as a second-half substitute for Sparta who are eighth in the competition and 12 points behind runaway leaders Feyenoord.
Goodwin's uncapped compatriot Kenny Dougall played the entire match for Sparta.
Centre-back Dougall, 23, has represented Australia at under-age level but is yet to play for the senior national team.
Speedster Goodwin was an unused substitute in Australia's 1-1 draw with Japan in Melbourne last week.
Meanwhile, fellow Australian Jason Davidson had a weekend to forget in Holland after he was sent off after 36 minutes for Groningen who lost 3-0 to Heerenveen.
