Facts :
Australia has appeared in the FIFA World Cup™ qualifiers a total of ten times since 1966, making it to the finals only once, in 1974. Following defeats by the former DDR and subsequent world champions Germany, they held Chile to a creditable 0-0 draw in their last group game but were still eliminated.
More recently, their hopes of qualifying for the 2002 FIFA World Cup were once again dashed at the final hurdle. The team from Oz lost out in the play-offs between Oceania's top side and South America's fifth-placed team.
Following a 1-0 home win, they were beaten 3-0 by Uruguay in a return game which decided their fate. Despite this, Australian football is on the up and up. In 2003, their 3-1 win in England was a result to savor.
