Luongo gets Australia call for vital Syria games

QPR midfielder Massimo Luongo has been selected by Australia for their crucial FIFA 2018 World Cup qualifying double header against Syria.

After the Socceroos failed to qualify automatically for the finals in Russia next year, they now face a further qualification round against Syria.

The winner over two legs will book a place in a play-off against a side from the CONCACAF section of qualification. Defeat would see Luongo’s side fail to qualify for the finals.

The Aussie’s take on Syria in Malaysia for the first leg on 5th October before hosting them in the second leg on 10th October in Sydney.
