The Socceroos will be back in action on Tuesday evening as they travel to Japan for another FIFA World Cup qualifier. Here is Zero Striker's guide to live streaming the match online, or watching it on TV.

The match, to be played at the Saitama Stadium in Japan, is scheduled to kick-off at the oddly specific time of 9:14pm (AEDT) - 7:14pm (local time in Japan) on Tuesday, October 12. The reason for the oddity surrounds the Japanese believing 15 to be an unlucky number and therefore never having matches start at quarter past the hour.

If you're turning in from a non east coast daylight savings timezone, then you'll be wanting to tune in at 6:44pm in South Australia, 6:14pm in Queensland, 5:44pm in the Northern Territory or 4:14pm in Western Australia.

Where are the qualifiers up to?

The Asian qualification bracket receives 4.5 spots to the FIFA World Cup. Four automatic spots, and one spot for the fifth-ranked team which will be decided in a two-leg play-off against a team from another continent.

The third and final round is currently underway, with each team slated to play ten games. There are two groups of six teams, with the top two teams moving through to the World Cup, and the third team entering a play-off against the third-placed team from the other group to determine who is ranked fifth.

What is riding on this match?

Australia have made a wonderful start to their FIFA World Cup third round qualifying campaign. They are currently unbeaten alongside Saudi Arabia despite not being able to play a single game at home.

It means they are currently six points ahead of the third-placed Japan, however, a loss tonight would mean Japan slice the gap in half. Another win though for Australia and it will begin to look like more of a sure thing that they are heading to Qatar next year.
