First they take on Iraq, who have won just the one match so far at this stage, before battling it out against the United Arab Emirates (UAE), who are alongside the Socceroos on nine points, so both games are crucial to them qualifying, and you can enjoy every minute when watching live on a standard or HD TV, or streaming the action to a mobile device with a Free trial.
Socceroos vs UAE 2017 Preview
This will be a very good contest between two of the better sides in this respective Group. The Socceroos proved too classy for them here in the Asian Cup Semi Final, winning 2-0 there, and then proving that was no fluke in September last year when travelling over to the UAE in 40 degree heat to win brilliantly 1-0. They return back home to their home turf at Allianz Stadium and provided they pull up okay from the Iraq contest, will go in confident here of getting the points. Aaron Mooy has been a star for Huddersfield in the EFL this season and is pushing that club hard towards getting a spot in the Premier League. He has been highly talked up throughout the season, with some big name clubs interested. Hopefully he can put on another clinic for his country, and if you can’t watch it Free to Air on your big screen you can still stream it live online.

Socceroos vs Iraq 2017 Preview
These two sides have already played in this battle to qualify for Russia, in September, where the Socceroos proved too good for Iraq, winning 2-0, in what was a pretty scrappy game overall, largely due to the heat and humidity, something that they will have to face once again in the Middle East here against Iraq.
The Asian Cup champ Socceroos are expected to win comfortably, but given their recent form, and the fact that Australian sides at club have been performing poorly on the international stage in the Asian Champions League, the confidence probably won’t be as high as expected. Socceroos captain Mile Jedinak has been playing some okay Football since joining Aston Villa from Crystal Palace, but has always starred for the Socceroos when the nation needs someone to stand up. His influence from the back will be crucial to this result.
