Sydney’s Stadium Australia plays host to Tuesday night’s must-win FIFA World Cup playoff second leg against Syria.
The venue has played host to some of the Caltex Socceroos’ most memorable moments (remember Uruguay in 2005) and a win over the Syrians will add another thrilling chapter to it.
We look back at Australia’s last three matches at Sydney Olympic Park, including a very exciting January night in 2015.
Caltex Socceroos 1-0 Greece - June 4, 2016
Lethal Leckie wins it at the death
Greece came Down Under for a two-game friendly series and it was a thrilling late flurry which handed Ange Postecoglou’s men a win in the opening clash in Sydney.
Despite dominating the 2004 European champions, Australia was unable to take their chances until late on.
First substitute Tim Cahill thought he had headed in the winner only to be denied by the off-side flag, before Mat Leckie won it in the final minute.
The winger swivelled on the edge of the box before drilling a low shot into the corner to delight more than 38,000 fans in attendance.
Caltex Socceroos 2-1 South Korea (aet) – January 31, 2015
Australia the Kings of Asia
A historic night for Australian football, the Caltex Socceroos and South Korea met in the AFC Asian Cup final, with more than 76,000 fans hoping to see the home side lift their first major trophy.
And it turned out to be a gripping contest.
Massimo Luongo’s piercing drive in the first half looked like being enough until Son Heung-Min levelled things up in the 90th minute.
So it went to extra-time and it was Australia’s two substitutes who combined, with Tomi Juric’s cross spilt by the keeper allowing James Troisi to score the winner.
What a night!
Caltex Socceroos 4-0 Oman – January 13, 2015
Aussies overrun Oman
After a dominant 4-1 win over Kuwait in the Asian Cup opener, Australia headed to Sydney Olympic Park and swept in another four against an out-classed Oman.
The Caltex Socceroos dominated from the outset and scored three times before the break through Matt McKay, Robbie Kruse and a Mark Milligan penalty.
They pushed for more in the second half but it was substitute Tomi Juric who completed the scoring, completing the rout with 20 minutes left in front of more than 50,000 jubilant fans.
