"It is fantastic that our date with destiny has now been confirmed and we are very pleased that the second leg will be played in Australia," said FFA CEO John O'Neill (pictured right). "With a win earlier this week over the Solomon Islands it is only this series which stands in front of us and we will need the support of the Australian public to help get us over the line." "We have committed to leaving no stone unturned to get to Germany and with the second match at home it gives us a great chance to achieve history."
