Australia, Kuwait and Jordan have completed the line-up for the 2011 Asian football Cup by coming through hard-fought final qualifying matches.

World Cup-bound Australia proved too much for bottom-placed Indonesia in muggy Brisbane, defender Mark Milligan scoring his first international goal in the 1-nil win.

Kuwait joined pool winners Australia in qualifying from Group B after they eked out a nil-all draw away to Oman in Muscat.

Jordan became the 16th and final side through to the finals when they beat Singapore 2-1 at home and Thailand lost to Group E winners Iran 1-nil in Tehran.
