Mark Milligan and Mathew Leckie, who were both suspended for the fist leg in Honduras on Saturday, and Tom Rogic who came on as a late sub, have also been named in the starting XI.

Tomi Juric, Massimo Luongo, Josh Risdon and Jackson Irvine, are the four changes to the line up Postecoglou fielded  in the 0-0 first leg on Saturday.

Luongo has been dropped despite a man-of-the-match performance in the first leg. 

Milligan will partner captain Mile Jedinak as the holding midfield pair, while Leckie and Aziz Behich play on the wing.

The same back three of Mat Jurman, Trent Sanisbury and Bailey Wright will start in defence with Aaron Mooy and Rogic in the attacking midfield roles.

Jorge Luis Pinto has also made four changes.

Captain Maynor Figueroa and Alberth Elis come into the clash after missing the first leg through suspension.

Extended Socceroo squad members James Jeggo and Craig Goodwin will watch from the stands after Postecoglou had been forced to cut two players from his group for the match.

The Socceroos will book their place in Russia with a win tonight. Any score draw will mean Honduras go through while a 0-0 draw will force extra-time and penalties.
