Australia v Honduras: Tim Cahill ready to lead Socceroos to Russian Federation

"In terms of the game, it's always important, you want to be there when the World Cup's played, we saw with Italy missing out this morning, and you realise the impact that has", he told reporters on Tuesday.

"Let's not be innocent", he continued.

"Just like VAR (video assistant referee) has made it into football, drones have made their way into espionage".

Australia take on Honduras on Wednesday, November 14.

Earlier this week, Pinto suggested that vital team information had been leaked out of the Honduras camp and was provided to the Australians.

"It was an embarrassing incident".

The accusation follows another dramatic incident for the Honduran national team, who held a stand-off with the Asian Football Confederation after they were denied access to the ANZ pitch over sponsorship: Honduras players wore training jerseys with the name of a soft drink company printed on the back of their jerseys, but it was not one that had any commercial arrangements with the AFC.

A spot at the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation is up for grabs and tensions are high between both sides, especially after Honduras claimed Australia used a drone to spy on the visiting CONCACAF nation in Sydney on Monday.

"If we dictate the game, as we have done in the past, we're going to be hard to stop". We're facing a balanced side and we need to be aggressive.

"Regardless of the incident of the drone, and also journalists in Honduras leaking information about our team, we have been very comfortable here", Pinto said.

Meanwhile Socceroos boss Ange Postecoglou refused to associate himself with claims of espionage or any other off-field issues.

Speaking at the pre-match press conference for Wednesday night's game, Pinto remained firm with his allegations, suggesting the Socceroos tarnished the reputation of their country.

"They're a risky team, but more important for us is that we impose ourselves on the game", he added. "We lacked that in the first game, but we know the boys can turn it around".

"As I said after that game, it's all pretty irrelevant and after the first whistle goes tomorrow night it will come down to those 90 mins and whatever is said beforehand is meaningless".
