By now, everyone should know the Socceroos ditched Oceania to find some serious competition. The World Cup is as serious as international football gets, though. Can any Asian sides fight their way through the group stages and possibly beyond?

On paper, the scenario does not look like a proper one. But, hey, let's give the lads a chance.
