[WORLD CUP 2014 QUALIFYING: Europe] Australia moved closer to returning to the World Cup for the third straight time with a 4-0 win over Jordan. The Socceroos can clinch a berth with a win over visiting Iraq, which was eliminated from contention with a 1-0 loss to Japan, next Tuesday. In Group A, South Korea and Iran are in the driver's seat after wins on Tuesday.

Bayer Leverkusen-bound winger Robbie Kruse scored one goal and assisted on goals by Mark Bresciano and the New York Red Bulls' Tim Cahill. Lucas Neill finished off the scoring in the 86th minute.

An own goal by Akmal Shorakhmedov late in the first half gave South Korea a 1-0 win over Uzbekistan to remain on course toward qualifying for the World Cup for the eighth straight time.

Iran buried last-place Lebanon, 4-0, thanks to two goals from captain Javad Nekonam and one each by Mohammad Khalatbari and Reza Ghoochannej.

Uzbekistan dropped to third place but clinched no worse than a playoff berth thanks to Lebanon's loss. Qatar was also eliminated.
