Australia beat Honduras 3-1 to qualify for World Cup soccer

Mile Jedinak of Australia celebrates scoring a goal during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers Leg 2 match between the Australian Socceroos and Honduras.

A scrambled injury time reply from Alberth Elis was no concern for Australia. "We knew it was always going to be a hard qualifying campaign but this makes it very, very special".

He made a pledge to the Australian public that he would lead the team until the end of their World Cup journey, which we now know will be in Russian Federation next year, so for him to leave the job now would be like leaving a sandwich half-eaten, it is grotesque and simply unnecessary - after all, he was the one who ordered the sandwich. "We're very grateful we're going to another World Cup".

Now, three and a half years later, those same players have taken Australia to yet another World Cup, and how they perform in Russian Federation will be the most crucial indicator of just how many fruits Postecoglu's efforts have bared.

It seems unlikely he will make his future clear on Wednesday and spoil a party which got underway with a fireworks display over Sydney harbour as soon as the final whistle sounded.

Tim Cahill, who missed that match with an ankle injury, started as a lone striker but his team mates were unable to present him with any clear-cut chances to notch up his 51st worldwide goal.

Late in the first half, Aziz Behich picked out Tom Rogic, but the Celtic midfielder could not get enough power on his shot to trouble Escober.

That aside, Aaron Mooy's set-piece deliveries provided Australia's main threat but Honduras, while offering nearly nothing in attack, survived reasonably comfortably until the break.

5.5 magnitude natural disaster hits off S. Korea's southeastern coast - state media
Around 2:50pm (local time) a third aftershock with a magnitude of 3.6 was detected about 7 kilometers north of Pohang. No casualties have been reported and it is still unclear whether a tsunami warning will be issued.

Rogic atoned for this miss nine minutes into the second half, though, with a thrilling solo run that brought Australia a free-kick on the edge of Honduras's box.

The Socceroos captain scored a brace of penalties after seeing an earlier free-kick deflected in off the luckless Henry Figueroa to spark jubilant scenes in Sydney.

The Socceroos skipper clinched his treble with five minutes left when he slotted a second penalty past Donis Escober.

Australia, however, remained on the offensive as Cahill's looping header dropped onto the crossbar.

Australia were awarded a spot kick in the 71st minute when the ball came off the hand of Honduran Bryan Acosta, a penalty which was dispatched into the bottom corner by Jedinak.
