Remember Irish striker Andy Keogh? He's scoring goals for fun in Australia

Meanwhile, Spanish star David Villa rescued a 1-1 draw for Damien Duff’s Melbourne City.

REMEMBER ANDY KEOGH, the ex-Leeds and Wolves striker who has 30 caps for Ireland?

After a number of fruitless loan spells and permanent (in the loosest sense of the word) spells at Wolves and Millwall, the Dubliner is now plying his trade at Perth Glory in Australia.

And thanks in no small part to his efforts Glory lead after the opening two rounds, following a late 3-2 win over defending champions Brisbane Roar at home on Sunday.

Keogh clinched victory with his second goal of the game in stoppage time after converting a 49th-minute penalty.

The 28-year-old striker now has three goals for Glory and shapes as an early contender for this season’s golden boot.

The loss left Brisbane Roar pointless after the opening two games along with AFC Champions League finalists Western Sydney Wanderers, who lost 3-2 to Sydney FC in the Sydney derby on Saturday.

Wanderers have home advantage in the first leg of the ACL final against Saudi Arabia’s Al Hilal next Saturday.

Spanish star David Villa rescued a 1-1 draw for Damien Duff’s Melbourne City, with his second goal in two Australian A-League games.

The World Cup winner struck a fabulous equaliser from the edge of the box in the 87th minute to share the points with the Newcastle Jets.
