The Australian national team will take on Germany in an international friendly in March next year.
The Socceroos, under new coach Holger Osieck, will get their chance to avenge the 4-0 loss in the World Cup when they meet Die Mannschaft at Borussia Park in Monchengladbach on Tuesday, 29 March 2011.
Football Federation Australia and the Deutscher Fussball-Bund have agreed to the match and Socceroos boss Osieck, a German native, is very excited about the prospect.
“This will be a very special match and a great opportunity to test ourselves against a very well-respected opponent," said Osieck.
"The German National team has a very rich and successful football history with a very talented group of current players.
"But I am confident that our players will be up for the challenge against such quality opposition.”
