Australia vs Syria: how and where to watch

Australia vs Syria: how and where to watch

Australia will next month face the fourth-placed team from the Concacaf section - now Panama - across two legs for a place at the World Cup.

Australia's precious away goal advantage was erased after just six minutes, when Omar Al Somah pounced on Mark Milligan's mistake in midfield to put Syria ahead on aggregate.

With the game barely into extra time the visitors were reduced to 10 men when Mahmoud Al Maowas received a second yellow.

Tim Cahill rescued Australia from the brink of World Cup elimination and in the process destroyed Syria's dream of qualifying for next summer's tournament in Russian Federation.

SYRIA take on Australia today in their World Cup qualifying second leg.

But, after 110 minutes, Australian stalwart Tim Cahill popped up with a 50th goal for his country to send the Socceroos through to the intercontinental play-off.

There would be further drama as Syria hit the post in the 121st minute with a free-kick but Australia managed to hold on to book their place in the tournament in Russian Federation.

With penalties on the horizon, Syria seemed desperate to hold on.

With the CONCACAF qualifiers coming to their conclusion tonight, Australia and Tim Cahill will not have to wait long before learning their fate.

The introduction of Syrian striker Firas Al-Khatib on the hour threatened to swing the momentum, but Ange Postecoglou's men maintained their dominance while squandering a series of scoring opportunities. The Aussies will face the fourth-placed side in the "Hex", with USA, Panama or Honduras all potential opponents for them next month.

"I said when he broke the 100 games that he's a great Australian sportsman, beyond our sport", he told Fox Sports.

Australia lost Brad Smith to injury, bringing dropped midfielder Aaron Mooy on to the pitch, but the Asian champions were back on terms in 13th minute. If it does, the two games will be Postecoglou's last in charge of the national team.
