Honduras up next for Wright’s Socceroos

Bailey Wright’s Australia will face Honduras in a 2018 FIFA World Cup play-off final.

The City skipper did not feature in the Socceroos’ 3-2 aggregate play-off win over Syria due to suspension and injury, but the victory sets up a two-legged tie with Honduras, who finished fourth in the CONCAF group.

The first of these matches will be played on November 6th before the teams meet in Sydney eight days later, with the victors securing their place in Russia.

VICTORIES FOR KELLY AND ENGVALL

Elsewhere, Academy product Lloyd Kelly was an unused substitute for England Under-20s, who eased to a 4-0 win over their Czech Republic counterparts at St George’s Park.

Gustav Engvall’s Sweden also enjoyed home comforts with a 3-0 win over Malta in their Under-21 Euro qualification.

The City striker – currently on loan at Djurgarden – was introduced in the 71st minute of the victory, which lifted his side to second in their group, a point behind leaders Belgium.
