    Australia’s quest to automatically qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia hangs on a knife’s edge. With Japan leading the group by four points, they have already secured first place regardless of this week’s results. The Socceroos are equal with Saudi Arabia on points, however, they sit at third place on goal difference, trailing the Saudis by two on that front.

    With only the top two teams automatically qualifying for the World Cup, the Socceroos’ qualifying fate is not entirely in their own hands. A win against Thailand, coupled with Japan either beating or drawing with Saudi Arabia will guarantee qualification, but Australia can also get through with a draw or even a loss. You can check out the qualifying scenarios here.

    Here’s how you can watch the Socceroos’ crucial qualifying clash.
