The Socceroos have become the first side to qualify for next year’s World Cup in South Africa after a 2-0 win over Uzbekistan. A goal from Josh Kennedy (no relation to Dr Karl) and a Harry Kewell penalty gave Australia the victory they needed to secure qualification with three games to spare.

The result will be a disappointment to Uzbekistan who were quite up for the game, you might remember!

    Actually they only qualify if Bahrain and Qatar draw.
