Australia vs Uzbekistan

Swindon Town star impressed for Australia in the Asian Cup.

Massimo Luongo is becoming a national hero in Australia with his Asian Cup exploits.

The Sydney-born 22-year-old played a key role in the Socceroos 2-0 win over UAE to set up a final against South Korea, which they will be heavily backed to win as tournament hosts.

Luongo credited as man-of-the-match for his display, and posed for a selfie with fans after the game in the stadium to snap a memory to savour.

The international recognition is world away from his club football at Swindon Town, who are continuing to do well in his absence, sitting at the top of League One.

As well as providing both goals in the win, Luongo had a late chance to score himself, seeing his effort saved by the goalkeeper.

Central midfielder Luongo was part of Tottenham's youth set up, leaving permanently to join Swindon in the summer of 2013.

He made his international debut for Australia last March, and has three goals and five assists for Swindon so far this season.
