Former Tottenham sensation Luongo produces 'outstanding' two goal match winning display for Swindon

Former Tottenham midfielder Massimo Luongo scored twice as Swindon beat Bradford.

Swindon Town's promotion charge was helped along by an impressive match winning display from midfielder Massimo Luongo.

The 22-year-old scored both goals in a home win over Bradford City as they edged a 2-1 victory.

Luongo had been out of the side through injury lately, with the team losing three games in a row to slip out of the automatic promotion places in League One.

The former Tottenham Hotspur academy youngster's performance was hailed by boss Mark Cooper after the game, who told Swindon Town's official website:

"He was outstanding first half and he looked a real top talent. He could have had his hat-trick."

Luongo is coming off of a whirlwind start to the year, in which he has gained celebrity status in his homeland thanks to his superb performances to help Australia win the Asian Cup in January.

The midfielder now has six goals and six assists for Swindon, and will hope to stay fit and drive them forward in an attempt to reach the Championship.

His status in the country saw manager Mark Cooper describe him as Australia's David Beckham earlier this month, a nickname which was picked up in his homeland by Football Australia.

Swindon face a challenge to hold onto him in the summer due to his increased profile, but if they go get promoted then they may just have a chance. More performances like the display against Bradford will help his cause either way.
