Australia, Honduras set dates for inter-continental playoff
SYDNEY (AP) — Australia and Honduras have agreed dates for their inter-continental World Cup qualifying playoff.
The teams will meet in Honduras on Nov. 10 and in the return leg at Sydney’s Olympic Stadium on Nov. 15. The kickoff time and venue for the first leg has yet to be confirmed by FIFA but it is expected to be in the Honduran city of San Pedro Sula.
Australia qualified for the inter-continental playoff after winning a two-game series against Syria in an Asian conference playoff last week and Honduras as the fourth-team in the CONCACAF region, comprising North and Central America and the Caribbean.
The winner of the two-leg series qualifies for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
