Australia 3 Honduras 1 (3-1 agg)

Adjust Comment Print

Tonight's World Cup qualifier against Honduras has officially sold out.

It leaves the crowd likely to exceed a massive 80,000, with the capacity of the ground 83,500.

Australia qualified after beating Honduras 3-1 in Sydney on Wednesday.

Honduras, who had been held to a 0-0 draw in the home leg last week, had been bidding for a third successive World Cup appearance but offered little in attack until Alberth Elis's stoppage-time goal earned the visitors some scant consolation.

Honduras' desperate push for a response left them exposed at the back, and Jedinak was on hand to convert his second spot-kick of the night after Johnny Palacios brought down the advancing Robbie Kruse.

"We deserve to be there". It is 0-0 after the first leg.

Jedinak broke the deadlock in the 54th minute with free kick which took a wicked deflection off Figueroa, but was eventually credited to the skipper after initially being marked as an own goal.

Australia's place in the World Cup was all but certain when, after Acosta was deemed to have handled in the area, Jedinak placed a wonderful penalty low to Escober's right.

As theyve done so often in recent matches, the Socceroos dominated in every aspect except the one that matters most – the scoreboard.

"I'm not trying to duck it but I watched the game and went to bed and I've not actually heard it from Tim himself", Joyce said on Thursday morning.

After widespread disappointment at not qualifying directly from the group stages, Cahill said that the Socceroos were determined to prove themselves to the Australian public. “If we continue at this tempo and this pace the pendulum will swing completely.

Cahill admits he needs game time before the World Cup.

A Jedinak free-kick eight minutes into the second half deflected off the defender and beyond Escober into the net. Some desperate work by Tim Cahill won the Aussies a corner and Aaron Mooy had three opportunities to set his teammates up after his first two deliveries were cleared, but he was off target.

"Its not just the results, it's the way we've gone about it".
