The 31st World Cup berth was handed out early Wednesday morning as CONCACAF saw its playoff representative fall.

Australia knocked off Honduras, 3-1, in the intercontinental playoff between Asia and North America. Mile Jedinak notched a hat-trick for the Socceroos in the second half to send the crowd in Sydney into a day-long celebration.

After Tim Cahill's headstrong heroics in the previous round, it was Mile Jedinak who emerged as the somewhat unlikely catalyst for Australia as they booked themselves a berth at the 2018 World Cup with a cross-continental play-off win over Honduras.

The two sides produced a goalless draw in the first leg in San Pedro Sula on Friday, so a 3-1 victory on home soil in Sydney this morning was enough to swing it for the Socceroos.

CONCACAF WCQ Rewind: Panama, Honduras win to knock USMNT out of World Cup

The Hexagonal's final day saw plenty of drama, with results that sent the U.S. Men's National Team to the fifth place spot after their loss to Trinidad and Tobago.

Honduras and Panama hosted CONCACAF powers Mexico and Costa Rica, both already qualified for Russia.

Here's how those matches played out:

Honduras 3-2 Mexico

Honduras needed a result against the already qualified Mexico to have any shot at going to the World Cup next summer, and though they eventually got it, it did not start so well for the home side.

Two of CONCACAF's three and a half spots in Russia next summer are claimed, and the race is on for that final automatic place and a date with either Australia or Syria in a last-chance playoff for finishing fourth.

Costa Rica and Mexico are in for sure, and, as the U.S. Men's National Team looks to brush Trinidad and Tobago aside to earn the third qualifying spot, two more matches with implications for that crucial fourth place position will go down.

It took until the 95th minute of action on Saturday night, but Costa Rica found the point it needed to officially earn a spot in next summer's World Cup.

Eddie Hernandez gave Honduras the lead in the 66th minute, but that was cancelled out by Kendall Waston's stoppage-time header. That put the Ticos through while making Honduras's road to qualification much tougher.

After surviving Honduras scare, USMNT still has work to do in World Cup qualifying

Tuesday's point wasn't enough to send the U.S. Men's National Team to Russia. It wasn't even truly enough to fully get feet back on firm ground. However, it was just enough for the USMNT to help their case in just the slightest bit.

Down a goal with time ticking away, Bobby Wood fired a vital goal in the 85th minute, sealing a 1-1 draw with Honduras in San Pedro Sula.

In a vacuum, this was a good result for the U.S. All points taken on the road during World Cup qualifying are good points, and San Pedro Sula in particular is a nightmarish place to play.
