Socceroos to play FYR Macedonia in Skopje in March

The Socceroos will face the FYR Macedonia National Team in an international friendly at the National Stadium in Skopje on Monday 30 March.

The match comes five days after the Socceroos take on the current World Champions and number 1 ranked team, Germany, in Kaiserslautern, giving head coach Ange Postecoglou two matches during the March FIFA International Window ahead of the dual FIFA World Cup/AFC Asian Cup qualification campaign that begins in June.

The match will be the second time that the Socceroos have played against FYR Macedonia having previously met on 12 March 1997 in Skopje when current Socceroos Assistant Coach Aurelio Vidmar scored the only goal of the match in the 89th minute.

“We’re very pleased to secure a second match in Europe during the upcoming FIFA window,” said Socceroos head coach Ange Postecoglou. “Two matches in five days against European opposition gives us a good opportunity to build on the platform we set in winning the Asian Cup.

“They are currently in the middle of qualifying for Euro 2016 so that gives us good opposition as we prepare for our next qualification campaign, which starts in June.

“It also gives us another opportunity to expose players to international football as we look towards the start of the 2018 World Cup cycle.”

Both international matches will be broadcast LIVE and exclusive on FOX SPORTS.
