Australia will take on European powerhouse Germany in an international friendly on March 29 in Monchengladbach, Football Federation Australia have confirmed.

Australia were thrashed 4-0 in their opening World Cup 2010 match in South Africa, and will be looking for revenge. Germany ended the tournament in third place.

"This will be a very special match and a great opportunity to test ourselves against a very well-respected opponent," Socceroos coach Holger Osieck told Reuters.

"I am confident that our players will be up for the challenge against such quality opposition."
