Australia into the World Cup after defeating Peru in penalty shoot-out


Australia has reached its sixth World Cup after defeating Peru during a penalty shoot-out in Qatar.

Substitute goalkeeper Andrew Redmayne was the hero, making the winning save as Australia won the shootout 5-4 after the match finished 0-0 after extra-time.

Mathew Ryan was the man to make way for Redmayne after putting a stellar performance to keep Peru off the board after 120 minutes.

“So proud of the players, you know?” coach, Graham Arnold, said after the match.

“I can’t explain this feeling, it is just complete ecstasy, and I can’t wait to celebrate with the boys.”

Australia will now face Denmark, France and Tunisia at November’s World Cup in Qatar.
