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

15 November 2017

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

Mile Jedinak led Australia into next year's World Cup with three goals in Wednesday's 3-1 intercontinental playoff victory over Honduras.

Jedinak broke the deadlock with a 54th minute free-kick in the 54th minute with the help of a huge deflection off Honduras substitute Henry Escobar.

ICRA welcomes GST cut on restaurants
Tax on eight items was lowered from 12% to 5%, while six other items were moved from the 5% slab to nil. Inspite of a 5 percent GST on restaurants, there is a niggling worry in the minds of consumers though.

But after 22 matches in 27 months on the Socceroos' marathon road to Russian Federation, what's 60 minutes to wait? However his first, a deflected free-kick, was later awarded as an own goal. Tom Rogic wasted the best chance during that period, scuffing a first-time left-foot shot into the arms of Donis Escober after Aziz Behich had combined brilliantly with Tim Cahill before cutting the ball back.

Maynor Figueroa pulled a goal back in the fourth minute of stoppage time, scrambling home from a corner, but it was of little consolation to a Honduras side who will watch from the sidelines as Australia take on the world at Russian Federation 2018. There were questions over the future of coach Postecoglou following failure to qualify directly from the group stages, but he now looks assured in the top job. Postecolgou became the first Australian to steer his country to a World Cup, even if doubts linger as to whether he'll take the team there.
