Amnesty accuses Russia of war crimes in Kharkiv
The Aussie Socceroos beat Peru 5-4 on penalties in a hard-fought qualifier, sending them to the Qatar 2022 World Cup
The Socceroos are heading to the World Cup in Qatar.
It was PULL for the majority of the game, with both teams locked in a stalemate, forcing the game into nail-biting overtime and then a penalty shootout.
Australian backup keeper Andrew Redmayne made the save that secured the Socceroo’s place on the world stage.
Redmayne was the humble hero, making the game-winning save as Australia won the shootout 5-4 after the match ended 0-0 after extra time.
” I am not a hero. I just played my part like everyone else did tonight,” he said after the game.
“I can’t thank the team enough, the staff enough. You know, I’m not going to take credit for that. The boys ran 120 minutes, and it takes not only 11 on the pitch, but also the boys on the bench, the boys in the stands.
A nerve-wracking game for Australian fans everywhere.
The World Cup begins at the end of the year.
In November, Australia will face two of the same opponents they faced at the 2018 World Cup in Russia: reigning world champions France and Denmark, with the third nation in their group being Tunisia.
