Jedinak hat-trick sends Socceroos to World Cup

In a huge boost for the Socceroos World Cup ambitions, key goal-scorer Tim Cahill has been named in the starting side for their crucial second leg clash v Honduras.

Captain Mile Jedinak scored a second half hat-trick to put the Socceroos on course for a 3-1 aggregate victory after the first leg in San Pedro Sula last week finished goalless.

The Aston Villa man let rip, the shot taking a wicked deflection off Henry Figueroa - who was credited with an own goal - totally wrong-footing goalkeeper Donis Escober.

Honduras' Bryan Acosta, who escaped a handful of yellows throughout the match, was eventually pinged for handball inside the box.

It is also the only known warm-blooded fish, giving it an advantage as a predator in the depths of the ocean. Ensor and his crew have planned to enjoy the fish, which is known for a rich and creamy taste.

Nevertheless, the coach's future remains uncertain after he was heavily linked with the exit regardless of the Socceroos' qualification fate.

A deflected free kick (53') and two penalties (72', 85') in a dominant second half booked Australia's place at Russian Federation 2018.

The visitors rallied but Kruse found a gap in their defensive line to race clear on goal, only to be hacked down by Palacios before he could pull the trigger.

Following a 0-0 draw from the first leg of their intercontinental play-off, Australia, who came through the Asian qualifying process, saw off Honduras, who came fourth in the Concacaf group, courtesy of three goals from dead-ball situations from Jedinak.
