FIFA helping Australia, Honduras, New Zealand, Peru with playoff travel costs

The FC panel caution Australia not to underestimate a gritty Honduras side in the intercontinental playoff.
Jason Dasey and John Wilkinson assess Australia's keys to defeating Honduras and advancing to the 2018 World Cup.

FIFA will pay $600,000 to help teams travel to two intercontinental World Cup playoffs next month.

FIFA says it will contribute $150,000 each toward travel costs for the soccer federations of Australia, Honduras, New Zealand and Peru.

New Zealand media this week reported that soccer officials made their case to FIFA for financial help toward chartering a plane. There are no direct flights to get the All Whites team from the first leg in Wellington on Nov. 11 to the return game in Lima on Nov. 15.

Honduras hosts Australia in San Pedro Sula on Nov. 10, and the second leg is Nov. 15 in Sydney.

Intercontinental playoffs decide the final two places in the 32-team World Cup lineup. The draw will be on Dec. 1 in Moscow.
