Australia's friendly with Wales confirmed

The Football Association of Wales (FAW) have today confirmed a friendly between the Welsh national team and Australia.

The two nations will meet for the very first time when Gary Speed's Dragons take on Holger Osieck's Socceroos at the Cardiff City Stadium on Wednesday, August 10.

Wales' clash with Australia will precede a couple of Euro2012 qualifiers which will be the Welsh sides last home matches in the group stage.

An FAW statement read: "The Football Association of Wales can confirm that Wales will play a friendly international against Australia on Wednesday, August the 10th.

"The venue will be the Cardiff City Stadium and kick off will be at 7.45 pm.

"This will be the first of two international fixtures at the stadium in the space of three weeks with Wales set to face Montenegro in Cardiff on Friday, September 2.

"The FAW can also confirm that the final home fixture in the qualifying campaign against Switzerland will be at the Liberty Stadium in Swansea on Friday, October 7."

The Welsh team is likely to include the likes of Tottenham star Gareth Bale, Manchester City veteran Craig Bellamy, Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey and Aston Villa's James Collins.
