The Socceroos will tackle world champions Germany in a friendly on March 25, according to Oliver Bierhoff.
The former Germany international striker, now the team's general manager, accidentally revealed at a press conference that the game is set to be held next year, despite the fixture not being formally announced by FIFA or either nation's governing body.
