Luongo features in Socceroos draw

MASSIMO Luongo played the full 90 minutes as Australia drew 1-1 with Iraq in their latest FIFA World Cup qualifier.

The Socceroos were held to a share of the spoils in Tehran in Asia Group B round three qualifying, as they bid to make the finals in Russia in 2018.

Matthew Leckie opened the scoring in the 40th minute, converting Aaron Mooy's corner.

But they were pegged back 14 minutes from time, when Iraq grabbed an equaliser courtesy of Ahmed Yasin.

Unbeaten Australia have now played six matches in group B qualifying, winning two and drawing four.

Luongo and his Socceroos team-mates are next in action on Tuesday, when they play host to the United Arab Emirates in Sydney.
