This qualification cycle for the World Cup has seen drama unending, and there’s still yet more to unfold before the whole field for the tournament in Russia in 2018 is defined. This latest action is defined to take stage in Australia, where the Socceroos are arranged to sponsor Honduras in the second leg of their inter-confederation playoff qualifier.
The first leg ended scoreless in Hondruas, with Australia playing a cagey setup made to probe for potential over-extensions in Honduras’ tactics, but accept a pull is that’s what was on the cards. Honduras aren’t accurately an error-prone team, hence few such prospects arose, and neither crew could look for a goal consequently.
There’s little room for such conservatism in this second leg, though, and it’s officially winner-take-all, with the addendum that any goals Honduras may score will serve mainly because a tiebreaker because of the aside goals rule. Australia must score at least two goals to be certain of advancement and be ready to score considerably more, because as we’ve found somewhere else in qualifying playoffs, highway teams are capable of scoring in buckets at times.
Only 1 thing is certain in this match: with two hungry teams in the pitch with two under-rated attacks, this video game will be full of drama and will almost certainly go down to the absolute wire before we know who’s headed to the World Cup.
