Mile Jedinak of Australia celebrates scoring a goal during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers Leg 2 match between the Australian Socceroos and Honduras.
Jedinak's first came courtesy of a deflected free-kick, before Tim Cahill went close to doubling the advantage with an excellent header that bounced off the top of the crossbar.
Honduras' Bryan Acosta, who escaped a handful of yellows throughout the match, was eventually pinged for handball inside the box.
Honduras captain Maynor Figueroa scored a consolation goal in the injury time. All four goals came in the second half.
Escober was on hand once more eight minutes from the interval to keep out a drilled Tom Rogic strike from an Aziz Behich cutback - the hosts dominating possession but creating few goalscoring opportunities.
The Aston Villa midfielder benefited from a big slice of luck on 54 minutes as his free-kick took a huge deflection off Henry Figueroa.
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.
