Fresh off the back of a 5-1 win over Chinese Taipei on Tuesday (June 8) and a 3-0 victory over Nepal on Saturday (June 12), the Socceroos are now preparing to take on Jordan in their final World Cup qualifying fixture. 

The last game of this round will kick off in the early hours of Wednesday morning AEST, but promises to be a thriller - so it'll be worth setting an early alarm for. 

Following a COVID-19-enforced break, Australia recommenced their bid to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar with a 3-0 victory over Kuwait in the early hours of Friday, June 4. 

The win came 567 days after they played their last game, fittingly against the same rivals, where they came out on top in a close 1-0 finish. With international football finally back for the Aussies, they've been thrust straight back into the business end of the second round of World Cup Qualifying. 

The Socceroos now face the last of four matches across a 12-day period, where they appear to have held onto top spot in their pool, progressing them to the next stage. 

After so long without international fixtures, football fans are no doubt itching to get their fix. So we’ve created a guide how you can how watch all the action live and free, whether you're in Australia or currently overseas. Read on to see how you cheer on the Socceroos tomorrow morning.

What if I go overseas when the game is on?

For Aussies who subscribe to streaming services like Kayo, you’ll find these don’t work if you head overseas on holiday (not that anyone can really do that at the moment anyway).

But if you do find yourself abroad and unable to access your streaming account, your best option is to use a VPN service to change your IP address to a different location. This should let you access your local coverage as you would back home.
