MAS­SIMO Luongo will be hop­ing to add the League One ti­tle to his sil­ver­ware col­lec­tion this sea­son af­ter pick­ing up the MVP award at the re­cent Asia Cup.

The mid­fielder was in­flu­en­tial as Australia se­cured the ti­tle, netting the opener in the fi­nal as the Soc­ceroos beat Korea Repub­lic 2-1 af­ter ex­tra-time.

That was the sec­ond time he found the net in the tour­na­ment, hav­ing only made his de­but in March last year.

And the 22-year-old said: “It’s been a good tour­na­ment. Ex­pec­ta­tion lev­els were not that high but I have man­aged to do well.

“I’m so thank­ful for what has hap­pened and all the boys did re­ally well.”
