SYDNEY (Reuters) - Australia and Syria went to extra time in their Asian World Cup playoff second leg on Tuesday after a 1-1 draw in 90 minutes at the Olympic Stadium left them deadlocked at 2-2 on aggregate.
The winners of the tie will face the fourth-placed team in North and Central America and Caribbean (CONCACAF) qualifying in another two-legged playoff, with a spot in Russia next year on the line.
The tie will be decided by a penalty shootout if there are no more goals in the extra half an hour. The first leg in Malaysia last week also finished 1-1.
