Australia scored twice late on to beat Iraq 2-1 and revive its 2014 World Cup qualifying campaign Tuesday, while Uzbekistan and Oman also earned much-needed victories.
Uzbekistan downed 2022 World Cup host Qatar 1-0 and Oman beat Jordan 2-1.
In Doha, Iraq scored against the run of the play from a counterattack when Younis Mahmoud crossed for substitute Ala'a Abdulzehra to slot the ball past goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer in the 72nd minute.
Australia leveled when Tim Cahill rose above the defense eight minutes later to head the ball into the net from a corner. With a draw looking likely, Australia substitute Tom Oar crossed the ball into the box for unmarked substitute Archie Thompson to head home the 84th-minute winner.
