Australia surprised the whole world by defeating Peru by penalties in the repechage and qualify for the World Cup to be held between November and December of this year. The ‘Socceroos’ fulfilled their role in 120 minutes and were more effective on penalties.
However, his achievement does not seem to move the masses in Australia, since very few fans went to receive the players and technical command at the Sydney airport.
In the images shared by the official account of the Australian team, it is seen that the players enter the airport one by one after getting off the plane, and that the fans receive them with applause and some shouts.
It is worth mentioning that this will be Australia’s sixth World Cup: it previously qualified in 1974 and 2006, both held in Germany, 2010 in South Africa, 2014 in Brazil and 2018 in Russia.
