A double from uncapped Socceroo Kenny Dougall has secured Blackpool a 2-1 play-off final win over Lincoln and a spot in next season's English Championship.
Socceroos squad member Kenny Dougall will jet off to join the national team in the Middle East on a high after firing Blackpool into the second-tier of English football.
Dougall scored either side of halftime at Wembley in Sunday's League One play-off final to seal a 2-1 win for Blackpoool over Lincoln.
The uncapped Dougall's double ends a six-year absence from the Championship for Blackpool, during which they also dropped down to League Two.
Ollie Turton put Lincoln ahead after just 48 seconds - the quickest goal in third-tier play-off finals history - before Dougall equalised 11 minutes before the break.
The Australian made it two and put Blackpool ahead with a low drive from 20 yards eight minutes into the second-half.
"Left foot, right foot," Dougall posted on his Instagram account along with an explosion emoji.
"Unbelievable from the lads."
Brisbane-born Dougall had only scored two goals this season prior to the playoffs, both against Oxford United.
He found the net again against Oxford in the play-off semi-finals before Sunday's Wembley double took his tally to five for the campaign.
Dougall's form will have him pushing for a first cap when he links up with Graham Arnold's 31-man squad for World Cup qualifiers in Kuwait City against Kuwait, Taiwan, Nepal and Jordan over the next fortnight.
