The Socceroos will play their first match on home soil in over two years in November, when they face Saudi Arabia in a crucial World Cup qualifier in Sydney.
On Friday, Football Australia confirmed that the match against Saudi Arabia will be held at CommBank Stadium on November 11th. It will be Australia’s first home match since Graham Arnold’s side defeated Nepal in Canberra prior to the Covid epidemic in October 2019.
Arnold’s team has only played one game on home soil so far in their 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign, with 11 of their 12 games taking place abroad.
“Despite the challenges which this has presented, the Socceroos have performed exceptionally well,” FA chief executive James Johnson said. “The Socceroos have a great record when playing Fifa World Cup qualifiers on Australian soil and we’re delighted that the team will have the opportunity to return to Australia to continue their Fifa World Cup quest in front of Australian fans.
