Local lad Massimo Luongo, the player of the series in Australia's Asian Cup victory has done his local community proud.

Massimo, a 22 year old local from Waterloo went to the UK to try his luck with Tottenham Hotspur F.C. and is now playing with Swindon Town.

I have known Massimo and his family since he was 8 years old. He played representative football with my youngest son, playing locally at Hensley Athletic Field, Jellicoe Park and other local venues. He was always such a talented young player. Now he shown in his home town what an outstanding talent he has become.

I told the NSW Parliament only in August last year, when I congratulated Massimo for making the Socceroos squad; "It is clear that Massimo is exceptionally talented and will be an exciting player to watch as Australia prepares for future international games " See my speech Parliament here. Wasn't that an understatement?

I know Massimo has now not only made made his family—father Mario, mother Ira, brother Titsiano and sister Angela proud, and his local community proud, but all of Australia.

I know this wonderful young man has a great future in front of him. He will make an important contribution to Australia's preparation for the World Cup in Russia. I wish him well in the future. He is such a great role model for other young footballers right throughout Australia.
