Upcoming Socceroos fixtures are announced all year round as the international men’s team participates in competitions around the world.

The Socceroos endured a disappointing 2018 FIFA World Cup campaign, as they were eliminated in the group stage following losses to France and Peru and a draw with Denmark.

While the team will play some international friendlies before the end of 2018, the next major competition they’ll be competing in is the 2019 AFC Asian Cup, where they will be aiming to defend the trophy they won in 2015 on home soil.

The Socceroos, alongside two training camps, will play three friendlies between now and the Asian Cup.

2018 FIFA World Cup

Australia made their run to the World Cup difficult, after spluttering through the Asian qualification stage. They managed to qualify after a strong play-off win over Honduras, but were drawn in a very tough group with European powerhouses France and Denmark, as well as Peru – who defeated New Zealand to earn their place.

The Socceroos were competitive in the group stage, but were unable to break through for a win and were subsequently eliminated after finishing last.
