Victory defender debuts in Holland

Young Aussie defender Thomas Deng has made his first appearance for PSV Eindhoven's under-21 side in the Netherlands.

The 19-year-old, who joined PSV on a season-long loan from Melbourne Victory in June, came off the bench against FC Utrecht U21 on Friday.

PSV U21 prevailed 2-0 on the night, moving to the top of the Dutch second division with four wins and a draw from five matches.

Next up for PSV U21 is a trip away to face sixth-placed NAC Breda, with Deng hopeful of featuring again.
