Aussies Abroad: Juric involved in Luzern's dramatic Swiss Cup win

Caltex Socceroos striker Tomi Juric has helped get FC Luzern into the Swiss Cup quarter-finals after a dramatic win over Echallens on Friday morning (AEDT).

Juric played the last half an hour as Ruben Vargas’ 86th-minute goal saw Luzern snatch a 3-2 win in the Round of 16.

Luzern led twice through goals from Shkelqim Demhasal and Filip Ugrinic, only to be pegged back both times by their lower-league opposition.

But just as it appeared the match was headed for extra-time, Vargas was set-up by Francisco Rodriguez to send Luzern into the last eight.

And they’ll face a tough task in the quarters with UEFA Champions League outfit FC Basel their next opponents.

Juric has been in excellent goal-scoring form for Luzern so far this season and will be a key player for the Caltex Socceroos in next month’s FIFA 2018 World Cup playoff matches against Honduras.

Australia takes on the Central Americans away from home on November 11 (AEDT) in the first leg before returning to play in Sydney on November 15.
