Caltex Socceroos midfielder Massimo Luongo scored a classy goal as QPR came-from-behind to snatch a 2-2 draw against promotion candidates Fulham in the English Championship overnight.
Fulham, unbeaten in their last 15 matches, led 2-0 heading into first-half stoppage-time before Luongo pounced to swing the momentum of the match.
A high free-kick into the box was knocked down by Matt Smith, with Luongo controlling the ball with his head before swiveling and volleying the ball in one motion to fire home.
It was the 25-year-old’s fifth goal of the Championship campaign.
QPR then ensured they would leave Craven Cottage with a point when Pawel Wszolek pulled them level eight minutes from time.
The result sees QPR remain in 15th spot on 47 points, well clear of the relegation zone with eight games to go.
