Qantas Socceroo Mile Jedinak is set to play in the richest game in football, after Crystal Palace beat Brighton to book a place in the English Championship play-off final.
A Wilfried Zaha double saw Crystal Palace beat Brighton at on Monday and book a place in the English Championship play-off final.
The forward notched twice within 18 second-half minutes to ensure Palace will meet Watford at Wembley on May 27 during a tight game.
Both sides had good chances to score with Ashley Barnes forcing a wonderful save from Julian Speroni for the home side before Zaha grabbed the first of his two on 70 minutes.
The 20-year-old, who will join Manchester United in the summer, lost his marker and got on the end of a Yannick Bolasie cross to head past Tomasz Kuszczak and put the visitors in front.
Soon after, Zaha killed off the tie as he turned well in the box before firing high into the roof of the net, sending his side through 2-0 on aggregate.
Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Zaha said he was delighted to have got Palace within touching distance of promotion to the Premier League.
"I can't explain it I'm just glad. We're going to Wembley, I've got no words to express how I feel right now," he said.
"It means the world to me, I've played for Palace for 10 years so doing this for Palace is just perfect for when I leave.
"I'm just happy I scored, I wanted to finish one of my finishing games really strongly and getting two goals is just a dream for me."
Manager Ian Holloway added: "I said a couple of weeks ago we'd turned the corner and that's six undefeated, two wins. We came to this place, everybody said we didn't have a chance. How proud am I of these people and for them (Palace fans).
"We've got a chance to go to Wembley now and take on Watford, and who says we can't do that as well?
"I'm so proud, I'm bursting. Absolutely bursting."
