It all comes down to this with two nations 90 or even 120 minutes away from qualifying for the World Cup via the Inter-Confederation play-offs.

Australia had to play a record 22 World Cup qualifiers to get to Russia 2018, going through those play-offs, so let’s hope for a repeat.

In the third round of the Asian qualifiers, Graham Arnold’s men won just four out of ten matches, finishing far behind Saudi Arabia and Japan.

So, last Tuesday they faced the other third, the United Arab Emirates, in a one-off play-off semi-final in Al-Rayyan.

Early in the second half, Jackson Irvine opened the scoring, set up by Martin Boyle, for the UAE to equalize just four minutes later.

With the game scheduled for extra time, Ajdin Hrustic’s superb long-range strike with just six minutes to go snatched a victory for the Socceroos.

Australia have appeared in each of the last four World Cups, the last failing to qualify two decades ago when they were beaten in the play-off by Uruguay.

So, will the Socceroos return to Qatar in November, or will they suffer more South American grief in the play-offs?

As for Peru, they won just 15 of 70 World Cup qualifiers for tournaments between 2002 and 2014, finishing bottom or second each time.

However, Ricardo Gareca has transformed Peruvian football since taking charge of the national team in 2015.

He ended the Blanquirroja’s 36-year World Cup exile four years ago, before taking them to their first Copa América final since 1975 the following summer.

In this cycle, los Incas finished fifth in the CONMEBOL table, beating Paraguay 2-0 on the final day to secure that spot.

So many Peruvian fans are likely to make the pilgrimage to Qatar for this play-off, hoping to return in November.

The winners of this meeting will face France, Tunisia and Denmark, world champions, in November; what price it is.

Will Peru have too much quality at the Ahmad bin Ali Stadium, or can Australia surprise?

Australia are without creative midfielder Tom Rogic, who has withdrawn for personal reasons.

Thus, Tuesday scorers Ajdin Hrustic and Jackson Irvine as well as Aaron Mooy, who has not played for the Shanghai Port club since January 9, will be in midfield.

Martin Boyle will be the creative force on the right wing with Mathew Leckie in the lead, chosen over Jamie Maclaren.

Milos Degenek could return to the position of central defender, chosen rather than Kye Rowles, alongside Bailey Wright.

Captain Mat Ryan will earn his 74th cap with the goal, hoping to feature in a third World Cup in November.

Ricardo Gareca’s side played a friendly against New Zealand eight days ago to do well ahead of this one.

Their main marksman Gianluca Lapadula scored the game’s only goal, his seventh for his adopted nation.

With Jefferson Farfán, Paolo Guerrero and Raúl Ruidíaz all absent, the Italian-born striker will continue to lead the line.

André Carrillo and Christian Cueva, who both play in Saudi Arabia these days, are in contention and will coach Lapadula.

Highly experienced midfielder Yoshimar Yotún will win his 113th cap, having made just 25 international appearances since making his debut 11 years ago.

Neither Renato Tapia nor Edison Flores featured in that aforementioned friendly but are expected to return for this one.

Pedro Gallese will captain the team in goal, while Aldo Corzo could retain his place at right-back if Luis Advíncula is unfit.
