The Caltex Socceroos are set to fine-tune their FIFA World Cup preparation with a pair of friendlies against the Czech Republic and Hungary in June.
In addition to the major pre-tournament plotlines, there will be plenty of historic intrigue against two countries the national team hasn't met in over 18 years.
Here's how Australia's record looks against the European nations.
Record: W0, D0, L1
Australia has only clashed with the Czech Republic on one occasion since the dissolution of Czechoslovakia.
Shortly before the OFC Nations Cup was a friendly in Teplice in March 2000, where a talented Czech side featuring the likes of Pavel Nedved, Tomas Rosicky and Jan Koller - who netted the second - prevailed 3-1.
Craig Foster grabbed a late consolation as Frank Farina handed full debuts to Clayton Zane and then-Watford player Richard Johnson.
Czechoslovakia enjoyed dominance over the Caltex Socceroos prior to that, winning six and drawing two of eight friendlies between 1980 and 1991.
Record: W2, D0, L0
Australia's history against Hungary makes for kinder reading.
Twin friendly wins in Budapest in 1997 and 2000 mean Bert van Marwijk's men will be protecting a 100 percent record in the June fixture.
That's exactly what Terry Venables was enjoying when, just over six months out from the FIFA World Cup qualifying play-off against Iran, he guided Australia to a 3-1 win.
Aurelio Vidmar struck a brace at either end of Venables' third match in charge, with Kevin Muscat having restored Australia's advantage late on following Laszlo Klausz's equaliser.
It was a similar story in February 2000 as Stephen Laybutt, Josip Skoko and Craig Moore earned a 3-0 victory, the Aussies again scoring twice in the final 20 minutes.
