Caltex Socceroos striker Tomi Juric will take goal-scoring form to Honduras after finding the net in FC Luzern’s win over St Gallen in the Swiss Super League overnight.
Juric netted the third and final goal nine minutes after the break as Luzern cruised to a 3-0 win at the swissporarena.
Receiving the ball 25 metres from goal, Juric took one step forward before hitting a powerful low drive which the keeper couldn’t hold, fumbling the ball into the roof of the net.
It capped an eventful few minutes for the former Western Sydney Wanderers star.
Juric had a chance to score three minutes earlier from the penalty spot only to have his attempt saved, but the rebound was smashed home by teammate Shkelqim Demhasaj.
The goal was Juric’s fifth of the campaign in Switzerland and has helped the club jump off the foot of the ladder.
It’s also great news for the Caltex Socceroos ahead of the upcoming winner-takes-all intercontinental play-off against Honduras.
Australia will need to beat the Central Americans over two legs (November 11 in San Pedro Sula and November 15 in Sydney) to qualify for next year’s FIFA World Cup in Russia.
