SYDNEY (Reuters) - An emotional Ange Postecoglou hailed Australia's qualification for next year's World Cup finals on Wednesday as a "fantastic achievement" but still would not confirm whether he would lead the squad to Russia.

The 52-year-old coach has passed up plenty of opportunities over the last month to rebut a media report that he was planning to step down from the job regardless of whether the Socceroos beat Honduras in their two-leg intercontinental playoff.
