QPR's Massimo Luongo is backing Australia to put on a performance in the 2018 World Cup after finding out the groups for the tournament in Russia.
Australia drew France, Denmark and Peru in Group C having come through the Play-offs to reach Russia, with Luongo playing a role throughout the qualifying campaign for the Socceroos.
Luongo went to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil but didn't play a single game as Australia as they lost all three group games to Spain, Chile and Holland, with a cracking 3-2 loss to the Netherlands the highlight of the campaign.
But fours years on, Luongo is backing his side to take it to France and give the teams in their group a real run for their money.
He said: "You never get any easy teams but we have a tough one against France in our first game but I think if we get a result or a good performance and try grind something out then I fancy us to get some points against the next two teams.
"I don't know too much about Peru but Denmark have some good players themselves, and France speak for themselves.
"I fancy us, we always go into these tournaments and people play us down a little bit because we're Australia and stuff like that but I think with the run we've been on and the confidence, obviously we have a new manager to sort out, I think we can take it to them.
"We played Holland, Chile and Spain last time and gave them a good run for their money."
