His appearance at 4–2 at Heidenheim was Jackson Irvine (28)’s best ever for FC St. Pauli. The Australian midfield machine scored two assists – and celebrated the win with a meal on the hill in the evening.

Common, but not in any way specific to second division kickers and national players. The Australian St. Pauli has a very special professional, without pretense and without air.
Irwin is no more!
After the Hibernian moved from Edinburgh (Scotland) to St. Paulie, Irwin intentionally moved with his girlfriend Jamilla to the district of Schenzen: “I wanted to be right in the middle of life, heard that there was a great scene with music, art. and Provides good food. The district suits me.”
What speaks in favor of Hill for him: He can walk up to the stadium. Irvine: “At least I mostly walk back. Of course, I also meet a lot of fans on the street who recognize me and show me their thumbs up. It’s really cool.”
It would be too far to walk for training on Coltrash. To do this, Erwin takes the train and bus: “Public transport in Germany is really good. You can go anywhere. Frankly I don’t have a car at the moment.”
But another trademark: his eye-catching mustache.
Irwin revealed: “I didn’t have that until last year. Before that, long hair was my trademark. I let my mustache during lockdown completely out of boredom. It took my girlfriend to get used to it, But it’s okay with him now.”
Kind of crazy, but also normal, this Irwin. And by the way, a very good footballer who has big goals. In form of World Cup qualification with Australia. To do this, he is always on the street half the world: “No problem for me. I can relax on the go.”
Also: International matches made him strong for St. Pauli. The final four games were midfield edge in the starting eleven – and all were won.
Irwin gets emotional on the pitch. Like against Dresden, when he verbally attacked his opponent, who was lying on the ground, and saw a yellow card. Irvine: “He should just get up because there was nothing. That’s right, I hit the ceiling easily sometimes.”
What are you missing next? A goal from Irvine for St. Pauli, of course. The Aussie laughs: “If that happens, I’ll do something crazy on the pitch.”
