    Mark Schwarzer made a name for himself in 1993 saving a couple of penalties against Canada to put Australia through to the next stage of World Cup Qualification. But he was at the time the 3rd choice Goalkeeper, the other 2 were injured. Obviously, first choice was Mark Bosnich but who was 2nd choice?

    Who is the father of a current A-League player, who himself scored a goal in an NSL Grand Final in the late 90s?

    The Wellington Phoenix are an overseas based side that plays in Australias domestic league. The Football Kingz were another NZ based side to play in an Aussie league. But, can you name the two Australian based teams to compete in a foreign countries domestic league and what leagues did they play in?

    Leeds United in the late 90s/early 00s were practically Australian. But I know thats not the answer.

    I read recently that a team called the Perth Kangaroos played a season in the Singaporean League so that's one.

    I know South Melbourne played in a comp in Singapore a few years back too but I don't think it was a league.

    Here's a multiple part question:

    - Who was the first ever A-League goalscorer?
    - Against who did he score his first career goal?
    - And against who did he score his final A-League goal?

    I'm actually surprised Veart played in the A-League. He would have been pretty old by then. I'm guessing 2 and 3 are the same answer. I have no idea who it is though haha.
