The Socceroos are ready to do whatever it takes to book a place in a fifth-straight World Cup when they face Peru on Tuesday morning (4am AEST) - even if that means a penalty shootout.
Australia may be just 90 minutes away from a fifth consecutive World Cup appearance — if they can win against Peru in the final World Cup play-off match, beginning from 4am (AEST) on Tuesday morning.
It's all on the line Monday when Australia and Peru face off in a 2022 World Cup qualifying intercontinental final for one of the two spots left for Qatar 2022. Australia dispatched the United Arab Emirates 2-1 on Tuesday to advance from the Asian Football Confederation, while Peru finished fifth in CONMEBOL qualifying. Australia has reached the past four World Cups, even advancing to the knockout stage in 2006, but it failed to win a group-stage match in 2018. One of its losses was to Peru, which was making its first appearance since 1982. The Peruvians won that 2018 match 2-0, and it is the only head-to-head meeting between the teams all-time. Monday's match will be played at Ahmad bin Ali Stadium in Al Rayyan, Qatar.
Kickoff is set for 2 p.m. ET. Peru is the -140 favorite (risk $140 to win $100) on the 90-minute money line in the latest Australia vs. Peru odds from Caesars Sportsbook. Australia is a +350 underdog, a regulation draw is priced +210, and the over-under for total goals is set at 2.5.

The Socceroos are heavy underdogs for the one-off battle in Doha, where over 12,000 Peruvian fans are expected to be in attendance compared to just a handful of travelling Australian supporters.
But for head coach Graham Arnold, the result is far more important than the performance, and he’ll gladly take a victory in whatever fashion - shootout or not. Follow live below!
Arnold was an assistant coach in 2005 when the Socceroos famously beat Uruguay for a place in the 2006 World Cup. And he was in charge in 2019 when the Australians overcame Uzbekistan in the Asian Cup - the only two competitive shootouts in Socceroos history.
“We practiced penalty shootouts even before the Jordan game,” he said yesterday. “The UAE game we did it, and we have continually practised it.
We make sure that all the boys, we do a little drill in the middle of the centre circle, all the boys have to walk up like they would, it’s like a rehearsal, like they would in a game, then take a penalty. We are ready for everything that is thrown at us.”
After finishing third in their Asian (AFC) qualifying group, Graham Arnold’s side was forced to beat the United Arab Emirates 2-1 in last week’s playoff to book their place in this intercontinental playoff, where they meet the fifth-placed team from South American (CONMEBOL) qualification.
“We’ve got to get in their faces,” Arnold told SEN radio on the weekend. “We’ve got to make a fight of this, a war of this, and make sure that when we go out on the pitch that we rattle them. When we do that, that’s our best chance.”
Arnold has been reluctant to reveal any hints about his starting XI. Regular centre-back Trent Sainsbury missed the clash against UAE with a knee injury and remains in doubt, after being forced to train alone in the lead-up to Tuesday morning’s match.
Elsewhere, there are two major decisions to be made.
The first is whether to stick with right back Nathaniel Atkinson after a very tough time against the UAE on just his second international appearance. Atkinson - who turns 23 on the 13th - repeatedly struggled to control lightning-quick Emirati winger Harib Abdalla Suhail. He could be replaced by 26-year-old Fran Karacic, who has represented Australia eight times and is more defensive-minded than the youngster.
Arnold said: “We have worked on it with Nathaniel and Fran. Nathaniel got isolated a couple of times against a player who had very good speed. At times, he let the player turn and face him and use his speed. He has to not let the player turn. We have worked on that and spoken about that. Those two players are in calculations.”
The other key choice is whether to stick with veteran Mat Leckie at centre forward or shift him back to the wing, where he has played the majority of his career and is clearly more comfortable.
Jamie Maclaren looms as the likely option to start in the number nine role, having come off the bench in the second half in a solid showing against the UAE. Leckie could be shifted to the left side of an attacking trio, with Adelaide United’s Craig Goodwin likely to be dropped to the bench.
Arnold said: “I think Lecks did very well there, he chased and harassed the centre backs and did a fantastic job. We have got a couple of options, plus Mitchell Duke and Nick D’Agostino.”

Why you should back Peru
La Blanquirroja are battle-tested and rested after they fought through a group featuring World Cup qualifiers Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay and Ecuador. They won and drew with Ecuador and also tied Uruguay during qualifying, and they have played one match since the end of March. That was a friendly against Qatar 2022 hopeful New Zealand on June 5, and Peru won that matchup 1-0. Meanwhile, the Aussies just played an emotionally and physically draining match against the UAE, and they seem to have regressed steadily since their 2006 World Cup success.
Peru has allowed three goals over its past seven matches, and it held New Zealand to two shots total while controlling the ball for 63 percent of the game. Edison Flores and Christian Cueva share the team lead with 15 international goals, while Gianluca Lapadula had the goal against the Kiwis for his seventh in 27 games. Orlando City goalkeeper Pedro Gallese is a veteran presence in the back for the Peruvians. He has 30 clean sheets and has allowed less than a goal per game (0.92) over his 90 appearances.
Why you should back Australia
The Socceroos come in with momentum off an exhilarating win and know they can rest once the job is done. Ajdin Hrustic scored the winner in the 84th minute and the Aussies held top tournament scorer Ali Mabkhout of the UAE without a goal to advance out of the AFC. They allowed just six shots in the match, and Jordan had just one on target as the Roos took a 2-1 in a friendly in their previous match. Jackson Irvine also scored in the second half of Tuesday's match, and he is one of eight players on the Australia roster with at least five international goals.
Melbourne City teammates Jamie Maclaren and Mathew Leckie are the keys to the attack, and Leckie started up top Tuesday while McLaren came on late. He forced a huge save on a sharp strike just before Hrustic's winner. Maclaren is banged up from a long league season, when he led the Australian A-League with 15 goals in 24 appearances. Leckie had nine goals for the A-League regular-season champs, who lost to Western United in the Grand Final.
