The Socceroos will play fellow 2015 AFC Asian Cup nation Saudi Arabia at Craven Cottage in London on Monday 8 September as part of the build up to the Asian Cup.
The match comes four days after the Socceroos take on Belgium at Stade Maurice Dufrasne, in Liege, giving head coach Ange Postecoglou two matches during the September FIFA International Window.
The match is the fifth time Australia has played an international friendly at Fulham’s Craven Cottage, which is now home to Socceroos 2014 FIFA World Cup striker Adam Taggart. The last match at Craven Cottage saw the Socceroos defeat Canada 3-0 in October 2013.
“The match against Saudi Arabia presents a good challenge for the Socceroos leading into the Asian Cup,” said Socceroos head coach Ange Postecoglou.
“Saudi Arabia has also qualified for the Asian Cup so it will be good to gauge where we are at against another Asian team.
“We made some steps forward in terms of our performances at the 2014 World Cup but our focus is now on converting those performances into positive results as we prepare to host the Asian Cup on home soil in January 2015.”
Tickets are available to purchase now priced from £20 adults and from just £10 under-16s and over 65s.
