Tribute to Socceroo Massimo Luongo

This month in parliament I was able to pay tribute to Massimo Luongo, a young local Heffron resident from Waterloo, who was selected as a member of the Socceroo's squad for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

I have known Massimo and his family since he was a young boy playing football on local parks with my kids. Now having represented his country, and recently scoring for Swindon Town on the opening weekend of the English Football League season we all hope to see great things from this very talented midfielder.

Mass is a great model for young footballers. It shows young children that it is not just talent. It is dedication. It is hard work. It is perseverance, and it is sacrifice by an entire family.

Mass, I know has brought great pride to his family, his local community and his nation. Hansard containing what I said in parliament is here: http://parliament.nsw.gov.au/prod/parlment/hansart.nsf/V3Key/LA20140806019?open&refNavID=HA8_1
