Bailey Wright’s Australia have booked their place at the 2018 FIFA World Cup after overcoming Honduras in a two-legged play-off.
The sides went into the second leg in Sydney locked at 0-0, but a second half hat-trick from Mile Jedinak saw the home side qualify for their fourth successive World Cup.
Jedinak opened the scoring early into the second half with a deflected free kick, before the Aston Villa midfielder successfully converted two spot-kicks to put the tie beyond doubt.
Honduras did prevent Wright - who completed 90 minutes - from keeping a clean sheet, when Maynor Figueroa bundled the ball home from a corner, but it proved nothing but a consolation.
Wright is set to be the third-ever City player to feature at the tournament, following on from Luke Wilkshire, who also represented Australia in 2006, while fellow teammate Hordur Magnusson will compete in Russia with Iceland.
