I'm soo bloody nervous about this game.. I've got zero idea how it could go!

Best scenario for mine is a scoring draw.

I think we will lose the game.

Hopefully no worse than 2-0.

Why do i think that?

Because Ange won't  park the bus and won't  change his philosophy.

I'm picking 3-1 to Honduras. Our defence is just to vulnerable to pace, and our midfield too vulnerable to skilled ball players.  Honduras have both.  I also think the effect of the home support in such a high stakes game could come into play.

However, if I'm right, making up two goals with an away goal up our sleeves in Sydney is doable.

yeah the bookies have australia at very long odds to win in honduras. and the draw is not much better. I hope we can keep it respectable otherwise as we have seen we find it difficult to put team to the sword that park the bus in australia

Aus to win by 2 or 3 , this will be the beginning of greatness for one Tomi Juric .

I hope you are right, is a worry that Leckie and Kruse are both out, hopefully we are due for a change of luck as far as the number of shots that have hit the posts in earlier games.

Just reading this quote from new Ange presser: ""Whether we play home or away, we play the same way."

Ange has made the mistake of equating lack of ideas with philosophical consistency.

Up early for this one. Gonna do my workout, then check the score at the conclusion of the game. Pretty confident in a 2 nil scoreline to the hondurans. Socceroos spoofed all over the second part of qaulifying and muffed it up. Team is not capable of getting a job done.

Terrible miss by Juric but overall we're looking alright. It looks like the Suncorp groundsmen were over in Honduras preparing the pitch at the Estadio Olimpico. They've out done themselves.

Another game, another chance for the team to make scoring a goal look harder then getting a root from the wife.

A commendable clean sheet but three clear cut chances wasted by us. I can't see them posing much of a threat back here and we should booking a seat in Russia come Wednesday night.

Should have won as we were the far better team. Took them 65mins to get a shot away, and it went for a throw in. Only one shot on goal all game. Defensively we were brilliant. The first miss was a massive bobble, second was a good save and third should have been cut back or one of them on the far post check there run. Should have had a penalty for the king hit on Wright. Not sure how they cocked the decision up into a free kick for them as it wasn't offside and their players or goalie wasn't fouled. Probably didn't want to be kidnapped and murdered. They only had one gameplan and it was to hit it long and get pace onto it. We prepared for that and handled it completely. If we play anywhere close to that on Wednesday, we should be good

Relieved - that we did lose

Surprised- that we dominated

Frustrated - how many chance do we need!
