i think two countries are nations biting their nails us where they may get well cup qualification yet it's not just the two countries we're in the newsroom biting our nails australia and syria are approaching full time in a tense world cup play off in sydney now this match finished one one after the first leg to school on remains the same in the second leg after goals in the first fifteen minutes there are just a few minutes remaining which would mean that this time would head to thirty minutes of extra time our correspondent andrew thomas joins us now live from the stadium in sydney and andrew regardless of what happens next in this match most people hadn't expected the syrian team to even get this far. couldn't they score up one one at virtually full time it's the same score that took them a full ninety minutes in malaysia to achieve on the one want to go here it was
2:16 pm
achieved within and it was syria that went ahead in the seven minutes. he scored in the seven minutes and it was a very quiet stadium i can tell you i was in there the australians who dominate the spectator and as you can imagine ninety five percent of the things taken by australians they went very quiet while the five percent of troops or forty thousand of them in there they went wild but just the six minutes because then that long time start you're saying hey that's up with an incredible header and equalise and i was in a thirty minute and i haven't been a goal since but. the five things australian certainly had the better of the match but they have been denied and then are you and tonight again by syria and syria have had their fair share of chances as well as you say i'm just getting a message now it's over we're into extra time one one the score after full ninety minutes but now we've got half an hour of actual time and then potentially penalties and whoever loses are you out of the world now and i. absolutely caldera
2:17 pm
i'm sure there's many fans who feel the same way but what kind of support have the syrian team had they in sydney. well the syrian same lie it's an interesting one because the vast majority of the fans in there are a fully behind series of syrian people who live here in australia and there are many of them more since the war because many syrian refugees have come to australia but the reason i group of syrians in australia who do not support the syrian scene because they see it as a wing of bashar al assad's regime they say he has planted lots of money into the syrian scene but lots of support behind it because he wants to show that syria is a functioning society with a good football team a very i mean they're supporting australia but it has to be said that the protest outside the ground before the match was very small and the protesters were totally outnumbered by they if you like the syrian support is there to support syria rather than the home team here in trying leigh as well some of the players in the syrian say i don't support the assad regime in fact one of the strong syrian players when
2:18 pm
it cools our chests he gives one of the big players in the first leg and was again here tonight has been again has not he boycotted the syrian saying for four years before deciding reluctantly to get involved again in this world cup campaign he came on as a substitute early in the second half and he's already been pretty pivotable pivotal in keeping syria in it but as you say one one went to extra time this could go to penalties it really is going to a nail biter all right and you tell us keep those nails on i will come back to you later on but thanks very much i simply is and fans have been celebrating after they've won in typical style after reaching their first ever world cup. but these are the scenes in reykjavik care as players and fans joined in a rendition is a fighting class following attain a win over kosovo iceland celebrations became famous when they made a surprise once the quarter finals of euro twenty sixteen with a population of just three hundred thirty five thousand. i'll be the smallest
2:19 pm
country to ever take part in a world cup. the republic of ireland world cup playoffs thanks to a one know when i will wells in cardiff in what was a dramatic end to group day the victory in short they finished second to serbia qualified automatically for next year's tournament while wales were eliminated the netherlands need any a miracle later if they are to qualify for next year's tournament despite finishing third at the last world cup theater and you need to beat sweden by seven goals to reach the playoffs lee wellings reports from amsterdam the future was bright the future was only when the netherlands finished third in the last world cup in brazil robin van persie is famous header in a five one humiliation of spain gave them lift off but three years of misery have followed a failure to reach the expanded european championships now that looks to miss out on next year's world cup. you need to beat sweden by seven player goals what do you think has gone wrong over these past four years well we all here. thinking about
2:20 pm
that how we can improve everything also but the federation. still got some good young players coming up so hopefully they can fill the gap. well we need but the young talent is not there now for an assistant route while it whose team were beaten for nell by france in august nor was it there. and thirty three year old are you robin is shouldered the burden but not given up or talked about international retirement yet. it isn't about me it's about the squad it's about the team and together we have to get a good result i really hope the stadium will be packed and then we have to present ourselves in a really good manner it won't be long before next it's the international stage and he'll be hard to replace like legends before him in the one nine hundred seventy s. the netherlands brand of total football mesmerised and influence generations to
2:21 pm
come with a great course at the center of it. in the world had a better reputation for producing young talent than i x. here and always so closely linked with the national like the national have gone backwards where have the darts legends gone for it's parent has been watching and reporting on them since the glorious seventy's era they still think we are. from buster reichardt and we don't have those players like iceland why like. norway so play like iceland and don't play like italy or spain there was a subdued atmosphere not the disappointment not anger.
