With 11 minutes remaining, Harry Kewell evades the off-side trap to meet John Aloisi's flick and bring the sides level again 

Harry Kewell's late strike sent Australia through to the second round after a thrilling Group F decider.

Darijo Srna's precise free-kick gave Croatia an early lead.

Australia were level through Craig Moore's penalty after Stjepan Tomas handled a cross, but Croatia hit back through Nico Kovac's bobbling drive.

Kewell was on hand to fire home from close range to send the Socceroos through, while Dario Simic, Brett Emerton and Josip Simunic all saw red.

Australia's draw sets up a second-round clash with Group E winners Italy as Japan failed to overhaul group winners Brazil.
