Tomi Juric will bring goal-scoring form into the Caltex Socceroos after his side's draw in the Swiss Super League overnight.
The Aussie front-man converted an early penalty for his side Luzern to earn them a 1-1 draw at home to Zurich.
The point sees Luzern consolidate fourth place on the Swiss Super League table after six games this season.
