Tomi Juric is hitting goal-scoring form at the right time for the Caltex Socceroos as he scored twice for Luzern in Switzerland overnight.
The Aussie striker scored a goal in either half but it wasn’t enough to earn his side the win, going down 3-2 to Lausanne.
Juric opened the scoring after just 11 minutes when he converted a penalty.
Two goals either side of the break had the visitors in front before Juric drew Luzern level on the hour with a clinical finish after a great ball from Christian Schneuwly.
The brace takes Juric’s tally to nine goals for the season in all competitions.
But just a minute later Lausanne went back in front to seal an impressive win on the road.
The defeat keeps Luzern in sixth spot after nine matches.
The goals will be great news for Caltex Socceroos boss Ange Postecoglou ahead of next month’s FIFA World Cup qualifying playoff matches against Syria.
The Caltex Socceroos will play Syria in Malaysia on October 5 before heading to Sydney for the second leg on October 10.
