That may be true - at least they will BE there.


We've won more world cups than your abortion of a country will ever win (0) before it becomes the Islamic State of Australistan

Nothing worse than a sore loser :P

After your 3-0 prediction of the home leg, I'm surprised you came back.

Well done Aussies for qualifying, did it the hard way but hey they are off to Russia 2018, Mile just bought that calmness to the team and if he had played those last qualifying games i doubt we would have had to play Syria and Hondorous.

As for the ref what a tosser, seriously, his antics last night were terrible, once again its all about them.

Four in a row!! Fantastic effort by all involved 8)

Australia's triumph in their World Cup qualifying play-off with Honduras gives two Socceroos generations the chance to come together at the showpiece event.

And it was a pair of players representing the old and new school – Mile Jedinak and Tom Rogic – who sparkled above the rest in last night’s 3-1 triumph.

Rogic, 24, will head to his first World Cup in Russia next year.

His fleet-footed brilliance was the chief source of delight for the 77,060-strong crowd at ANZ Stadium before Australia finally broke though on 58 minutes.

It was no surprise that it was his genius that brought the opener, frustrating the Honduran midfield into fouling him within range of goal.

Jedinak, 33, finished that chance.

The Australian captain was helped by a healthy deflection off Henry Figueroa’s stomach, only to be credited with the goal by officials after the match.

He would finish with a rare hat-trick – just the second by an Australian in the last five years – and now gets to lead Australia in his third appearance at a World Cup.

It’s a feat all the more remarkable given the year that preceded it..................

...........And while there are already numerous high points in a career featuring an FA Cup final, two World Cups and an Asian Cup triumph, this rates as at least an equal.

“Its probably right up there,” Jedinak said.

“All things considered, definitely.

“I’m a bit lost for words on how I’m feeling at the moment, but I’m immensely proud of everybody and what we’ve done.”

That was about all Jedinak could muster as he reflected on the sheer work it had taken to get his body right.

For Socceroos staff, the return was always worth it given Australia have lost only once in the past 21 internationals the 33-year-old has played.

“I always wanted to be in this position,” Jedinak said.

“To have actually done it now on both occasions is probably surprising, just being able to back up.

“It’s a credit to everybody who’s helped me along the way. There were no doubts, you can just never predict how you’re going to pull up.

“It probably means more than I can describe.

“We set out on a task a couple of years ago to qualify for a World Cup and make an impact, but first it was always getting there.

“We were one of the last teams to do it, but we did it our way and I’m very proud of what we’ve done.”

Jedinak was quicker to find his words when it came to claims by under-fire Honduras coach Jorge Luis Pinto that Australia played a “brute game” to try and neutralise gun winger Alberth Elis.

“They can talk all they want, they were aggressive as well,” he said.

“The referee blew as many fouls for them as he did for us. The yellow cards, same sort of thing.

“We just do our talking on the pitch. If you try and play football without being aggressive then you’re never going to do anything right.”

For coach Ange Postecoglou, the Australian players – old and new – had been vindicated after a long, difficult and often contentious campaign.

“They got what they deserved,” he said.

“It wasn’t luck or chance. They believed in something that they started.”.......................... https://indaily.com.au/sport/soccer/2017/11/16/259192/

Great to get there - relief more than anything. BUT the first half was terrible and we have struggled all tournament. If little changes by the time we get to Russia, we'll get smashed. Bottom line - an own goal (forcing Honduras to open up) and two pens it took to get over the line.

Happy, but both feet are still firmly on the ground.

That's because the service to Timmy was non-existence.
Juric couldn't score in a macdonalds.
Australia deserved the win and book its place to Russia.

This could be a blessing as the Aussies have played the most number games in this qualifying campaign, and scored the most number of goals?
:shock:

The free kick and the first penalty.

I thought it was a nailed on penalty, outstretched handball, good decision although not sure why he waited so long. I think the big decision was the Jurman over the ball tackle, couldn't have argued if it was a red card, potential leg breaker.

Was that the one early on that he was booked for? If so, could have been but thought seeing as he got the ball a booking was right.

A number of refs I have spoken to have said that they thought the penalty was harsh but can see why it was given. Sometimes they get given, sometimes they don't. For me it was clearly ball to hand.

IMO it was a free kick he tried to tackle from behind him he got into his back and he put his foot across him to try and win the ball he missed the ball and tripped him. It wasn't a bad foul but it was still a free kick.

Re the first penalty he had his arm out stretched as he was falling and his hand was in what I would say was an un-natural position especially, when the ball hit his hand it was closer to where his foot should be compared to where his hand should be. The ref was in a very good position to see it.

I thought it No6 that gave the penalty away should have got a yellow for persistent fouling, 6 in the first half. I also thought one of the linesman got a few things wrong.

First half went quick but it was a poor standard from both teams. Second half we lifted the tempo and deserved the win.

I thought Syria was much better and more dangerous team than Honduras.

And yes their coach did look like Peter Falk - anyone remember him? :)
