The pressure on the Socceroos is intense

Socceroos legend Craig Moore again joins the Wide World of Sports commentary team for the encounter, alongside WWOS football expert Michael Bridges and host Clint Stanaway.

Nine’s director of sport Tom Malone said: “It doesn’t get any bigger than this. One match. Must win. Home crowd. The pressure on the Socceroos is intense and we’re expecting a huge television audience to get right behind them.”

Aggregate score explained

• One away goal scored equals two goals on the aggregate score only if the match ends in a draw.

• If the aggregate score is tied at the end of normal time, the match will go into extra time. If it is still tied at the end of extra time both teams will enter a penalty shoot-out.

• Any win by the Socceroos will send them to the FIFA World Cup 2018.
