Socceroos pull off great escape

9:06 am on 20 November 2008

The Socceroos scored a goal three minutes into stoppage time to pull off a remarkable 1-nil win despite being completely outplayed by Bahrain in their World Cup qualifying match in the gulf state.

The Socceroos now a perfect nine points from three matches and are in a commanding position to qualify for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

Bahrain's cruel loss effectively ends their hopes of qualifying.
