We’re just a few weeks away from the Caltex Socceroos’ make-or-break Intercontinental playoff against Honduras to get to the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
It looms as a huge challenge for Ange Postecoglou’s men as they aim to qualify for a fourth successive World Cup.
Ahead of the two-legged tie next month, we pick out four key men for Honduras.
The vastly experienced captain of Honduras has been playing professionally for the best part of two decades.
This included close to 200 games for Wigan Athletic and a spell at Hull City.
The 34-year-old defender has played 145 times for his country since debuting in 2003.
Nicknamed 'La Panterita' (Little Panther), the livewire striker was just 18 when he made his full debut for Honduras.
By that time he had already represented his country at both the under-17 and under-20 World Cups.
Still only 21, Elis is a fixture in the national side and plays his club football for Houston Dynamo in the MLS.
The 31-year-old defensive midfielder represented his country at age-group level before making the jump to the full Honduras side at the age of just 20.
Claros played all three games for Honduras at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil and has been a constant presence in qualifying this time around too.
With a professional career which has stretched across several countries, he brings significant experience to his side’s spine.
The US-based striker scored the crucial winning goal in the 3-2 victory over Mexico which ensured fourth place in the CONCACAF group.
Another to have represented Honduras at age-group level, Quioto also scored against the USA, Panama and Trinidad and Tobago in the final World Cup qualifying group.
He is a team-mate of Elis at Houston Dynamo and has appeared 36 times for the national side.
