World Cup qualifiers: Preview of final games to determine who will be in World Cup

That said, the buildup to these games has not been smooth for the South Americans. Their captain and talisman Paolo Guerrero will play no part after failing a drug test.

CONCACAF/AFC (NORTH AMERICA, CENTRAL AMERICA, AND CARRIBIAN/ASIA)

Honduras v. Australia: Neither Honduras and Australia are boasting vintage teams, but both will feel they have gotten a fairly favorable playoff task.

There, however, myriad uncertainty in the Australia camp. Manager Ange Postecoglou is set to quit after this tie regardless of its result, while the ageless Tim Cahill is a fitness doubt for the first leg at least.

The first leg, which is set for Friday, is where Jorge Luis Pinto’s team will look to do its damage. San Pedro Sula is a horrible place to play for visiting teams, and Australia’s trip there will take nearly an entire day.
