Australia qualified for their fourth successive World Cup by beating a physical Honduras 3-1 at Stadium Australia in Sydney.
After a goalless first leg, Aston Villa player Mile Jedinak’s 53rd-minute free-kick took a decisive deflection off Henry Figueroa to break the deadlock.
Jedinak then drilled in penalties after a handball by Bryan Acosta and foul by Johnny Palacios to seal victory.
Maynor Figueroa bundled in late on, but it was too late for the visitors.
