But the visitors were soon back on top and Theo made another good save from Martinez before Avraam Papadopoulos brought down Brendon Santalab in the penalty area and Antonis buried the spot-kick into the bottom left corner of the net.

A collision between Kearyn Baccus and Theo in the first half of extra-time left both players unable to continue, and oncoming replacement Young made a superb save within seconds of coming on, turning Santalab's close-range blast over the crossbar.

Five minutes later Wanderers were reduced to 10 men when substitute Sotirio was sent-off for a second bookable offence after a clumsy challenge on Corey Brown, but neither side could force a winner and the game went to penalties.

After successful penalties by Brandon Borrello, Nicholas D'Agostino, Maclaren, Luke De Vere, Thomas Kristensen and Tommy Oar, Young guessed correctly and dived to his left to save from Jumpei and send jubilant Brisbane through to the semis.
