Luongo will be pushing for a starting sport in Russia following a career-best season that earned him the club's Player of the Year award.

He signed with the Championship side in 2015 following a strong apprenticeship with Tottenham and Swindon Town, impressing Ange Postecoglou enough at the latter for a place among the 23 that headed to Brazil four years ago.

The Sydney talent used that experience to star at the 2015 AFC Asian Cup and three years on he looks ready to impress at another major event.

Best Caltex Socceroos moment:

Buoyed by his trip to Brazil, Luongo was sensational on home soil the following January: scoring the opener in the AFC Asian Cup Final and defying all expectations to win the Most Valuable Player award.
