They may have taken the longest possible route, but the Socceroos are off to their fourth consecutive FIFA World Cup after defeating Honduras in Sydney overnight.
Captain Mile Jedinak lead the team to a 3-1 victory in front of more than 77,000 passionate fans at ANZ Stadium.
It was a nervous start for the Aussies, but they came back in the second half with a deflected free kick and two penalty goals, courtesy of Jedinak.
