Christopher Schindler was the hero for his side, netting the winning penalty, after Liam Moore had blazed over for Reading, before Jordan Obita saw his effort saved by Huddersfield goalkeeper Danny Ward.

Now after 10 months in England and a memorable afternoon at Wembley, on-loan Socceroos star Mooy is Premier League-bound.

The team are known as the Terriers and have the dog on the club emblem.

Later, Nahki Wells had a chance he had been waiting for all game in the final few minutes of extra-time when the ball fell to his feet on the edge of the area but the exhausted frontman pulled his effort wide.

Garath McCleary and Wells both drags shot wide before the dramatic penalty shootout.

Mooy will address his immediate future in the coming days, but said that thoughts of playing in the Premier League were in the back of his mind as he savoured Huddersfield's victory.

51 years after England last won something on the worldwide stage, people are starting to realize that the whole British Bulldog Fighting Spirit thing only takes you so far.

Australian Mooy was a rock at the center of the Huddersfield midfield.

The Terriers' promotion to the Premier League sets up their first games against Manchester United since 1972, when the Red Devils beat Town 2-0 at Old Trafford in the English First Division.

"They will have a de-brief on Tuesday, as I understand it, but that's football I'm afraid. I just need to see what happens in the summer".

"Hopefully we can do well next season, but to be honest I don't really want to think about that. We're very happy that he was with us and maybe this is a further phone call that I have to do".
