Video: Former Tottenham Hotspur talent Massimo Luongo scores as Australia win Asian Cup

Australia Fans

The Swindon Town midfielder opened the scoring in Sydney.

Australia have won the AFC Asian Cup, after defeating South Korea in the final this morning. The game, played at the Sydney ANZ Stadium, saw Australia win 2-1 after extra time and a former Tottenham Hotspur youngster continued to put his name on the international map.

Swindon Town star Massimo Luongo has been in terrific form in the competition and he scored the opening goal of the game. He smashed home a strike from outside the box and had the rowdy home support up on their feet. It was his second goal of the competition and his form has captured attention.

Flic Wiltshire reported that Wolves, Brentford and Sevilla are all interested in the player, who once captained the likes of Harry Kane, Nabil Bentaleb, Ryan Mason and Danny Rose in the Tottenham youth teams.

The central-midfielder joined Tottenham in 2011 after a successful trial. Luongo played just one time for Tottenham, featuring in a League Cup defeat against Stoke City back in 2011. It was a game he would want to forget, his missed penalty cost Spurs the game.

He spent time on loan at Ipswich Town and Swindon Town during his Spurs career, before agreeing a permanent move to The Robins in 2013 - where he is now a firm fan favourite and first-team regular.

His goal was cancelled out in the 90th minute by Bayer Leverkusen forward Heung-Min Son, but Australia won the tie after James Troisi scored in extra-time as Luongo will return to Swindon a national hero.
