Australia have officially secured qualification for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation with a 3-1 win over Honduras on Wednesday night.
Jedinak might argue he deserved to be credited with the hat-trick, but the official scorer ruled his first effort an own goal after it deflected off a defender.
The Australians defeated Honduras 3-1 in Sydney in a game which would book the victor a place in the world's greatest sporting tournament.
He doubled the advantage with a second from the spot after Bryan Acosta's handball in the 73rd minute.

He didn't looked like a teenager as he fended off the likes of Wasim Akram and Imran Khan and scored 172-ball 59. Sachin Tendulkar was just 16 years old when he walked in to bat in Karachi to replace Manoj Prabhakar.
The result, which also saw Alberth Elis net for Honduras in second-half stoppage time, means Australia will compete at a fourth consecutive World Cup - a huge relief for Postecoglou after his side finished third to Japan and Saudi Arabia in the group stage.
The visitors rallied but Kruse found a gap in their defensive line to race clear on goal, only to be hacked down by Palacios before he could pull the trigger.
It proved to be a memorable night for captain Mile Jedinak, who scored all three of Australia's goals, in the 53rd, 72nd and 85th minutes.
