Australia Qualify for World Cup with Victory Over Iraq
A Josh Kennedy header has booked Australia’s place at the 2014 World Cup, joining Japan, South Korea and Iran as the direct Asian qualifiers.
Josh Kennedy, a late substitute for Tim Cahill, did not waste time in putting his Jesus-style look to bring the miracle for Australia.

2014 will mark 40 years since Australia first qualified for the World Cup, with Chile sharing the group in 1974.
