Tomi Juric has been sent off in the dying stages of his latest club match in Switzerland.
The Caltex Socceroos striker was instrumental in Luzern's late equaliser against Grasshoppers, flicking the ball on for team-mate Shkelqim Demhasaj to square the ledger at 2-2 in the 89th minute.
But in the aftermath to the goal, Juric and Grasshoppers midfielder Numa Lavanchy were both shown straight red cards.
Juric will miss Luzern's next Super League clash away at St. Gallen on Thursday.
He is expected to be part of Australia's squad for the two crunch World Cup qualifiers in Group B of World Cup qualification.
The matches are on August 31 and September 5, away to Japan then home to Thailand in Melbourne to finish the group qualification phase.
