Caltex Socceroos revel in World Cup qualification
After a testing Road to Russia, the Caltex Socceroos sealed their spot at the 2018 World Cup with a convincing 3-1 win over Honduras on Wednesday night.
A hat-trick to inspirational skipper Mile Jedinak was enough to get Australia over the line after a nerve-wrangling tie.
And after a long qualifying campaign, it was a moment the players had every right to savour.
It was a similarly special night for the 77,060 fans that turned out to cheer the Caltex Socceroos over the line with the squad quick to pay thanks at full-time.
Even Canadian rapper Drake, who was performing next door at Qudos Bank Arena, got in on the act.
