GROUP POINTS TABLE:
Japan who will be playing in the confederations cup later in the month have already booked their place in the knockouts as they have 13 points in the 6 matches they have played in the group stages so far. So there is not much of a pressure on the Japanese side while Aussies are up against all the other three teams in the group as Jordan who have 7 points after 6 matches, Oman have 6 points after 6 matches and Iraq also in the mix with 5 points in 5 matches.
So that makes next 3 matches for Australia very important as they can not afford to drop points or they will be missing out on a berth for the FIFA World Cup next year. Please take a look at the detailed group table for this Asian World Cup Qualifiers stage. Australia and Japan have played 5 matches in the last 5 years and Japan has won twice while Australia won it once, and in the earlier game in the group stages last year was finished 1-1 in down under. Australian must win this match to keep themselves on track for the qualification from this group.
