1860 Munich striker Ivica Olic has been suspended for two matches and fined €20,000 by the German Football Association (DFB) after being found guilty of betting on games.

The DFB released a statement saying that Olic, 37, made online bets of three-figure amounts on a number of matches in August and September.

Bolting into the national team from the blue is becoming a popular route under coach Ange Postecoglou.

Apostolos Giannou, Chris Ikonomidis, Jackson Irvine, James Meredith and Bailey Wright all sat well outside the frame before being blooded.

But even by Postecoglou-era standards, Degenek's story takes some beating.

The 22-year-old had played three matches in three years with Stuttgart's...
