Cahill scores extra-time victor to keep Australia alive

After last week's 1-1 draw in Malaysia, Australia won 3-2 on aggregate to reach a final play-off against the fourth-placed team from the CONCACAF federation, now Panama. But Australia survived to stay on track for its fourth straight World Cup.

The United States, Panama and Honduras, the three nations who could provide the opposition in the intercontinental playoff, play their final qualifiers later on Tuesday.

The second leg of the Asian Confederation play-off game (second leg) between Australia and Syria takes place in Sydney.

The score at ANZ Stadium was locked at 1-1 at the end of regulation time on Thursday night, after a first-half Tim Cahill header cancelled out Omar Al Somah's sixth-minute opener.

What time does the Australia vs Syria match start?

Postecoglou's concerns threatened to deepen when Brad Smith had to go off injured, with Mooy introduced in his stead, but the Socceroos breathed a sigh of relief with 12 minutes played when Cahill headed in a brilliant Mathew Leckie cross from the right.

Alma again had to be at his best to stop a fierce Rogic strike from the edge of the box after 70 minutes and the Celtic midfielder curled a shot just wide of the far post from the ensuing corner. A goal for al Soma would have levelled the aggregate at 2-2, but put Syria through on the away goals rule.
