The win leaves Luzern fifth in the table, disappointingly falling just shy of the European places, but the Australian has had a fine season.

His form should be a boost for a Socceroos side that has had their share of trouble finding the net from open play, having not done so since October. 

Juric has been a regular for Australia coach Ange Postecoglou, starting six of the side's seven final round AFC World Cup qualifiers and scoring two goals along the way.
