Australia v Honduras
There are just three more spots to be filled at the 2018 World Cup.
Those spots will be taken by the victors of the following three matches: Ireland v Denmark, Peru v New Zealand and Australia v Honduras.
Picking up on the final match in that set, Australia drew 0-0 with Honduras in the first leg of their playoff.
Whoever wins the match on Wednesday will advance to Russia next summer.
‘Australia’s spy drone’
In the build up to the second leg, Honduras are accusing the Australians of spying on them.
That’s after video footage was recored and shared on social media this week from the Honduras training session at the ANZ Stadium in Sydney.
During the session, a drone was spotted high in the air, hovering above the stadium.
The Hondurans believe the drone was being guided by the Australians, and the Socceroos were trying to spot any weakness in their opponents before the game.

There is no love lost between Australia and Honduras
Australia had a penalty call they thought they should have gone their way in the first game.
Overall though, Australia should be happier with the goalless draw and will be keen to finish the job on home soil in Sydney.
Thee first leg was though more aggressive than many would have predicted for a match between Australia and Honduras.
Tim Cahill on retiring
Should Honduras qualify ahead of Australia, will Aussie hero Tim Cahill retire?
That question was posed to Cahill this week, and he responded with a brilliant quip.
Enjoy that clip below.
