2018 FIFA World Cup results

Australia made their run to the World Cup difficult, after spluttering through the Asian qualification stage. They managed to qualify after a strong play-off win over Honduras, but were drawn in a very tough group with European powerhouses France and Denmark, as well as Peru – who defeated New Zealand to earn their place.

The Socceroos were competitive in the group stage, but were unable to break through for a win and were subsequently eliminated after finishing last.
