It was goals galore in Europe as James Holland put his hand up for a Socceroos spot. Meanwhile Aaron Mooy and Alex Gersbach made debuts for their clubs. It's all in FTBL's Aussies Abroad!
In the English Premier League Aaron Mooy got his first start for Brighton in the league playing 70 minutes while Mat Ryan got himself a clean sheet in a 0-0 draw with Newcastle United.
A pity we couldn’t convert a few of our chances yesterday, but plenty of positives to take from it. We’ll keep working hard in order to get the results the performances deserve. Congratulations @steven_alzate98 on your debut. pic.twitter.com/8odYnUfGlH— Maty Ryan (@MatyRyan) September 22, 2019
