The Socceroos will face the tournament hosts and 1998 winners later this year.
Australia will reportedly take on Brazil and France in consecutive months later in 2013 as they begin preparations for the World Cup next year.
Fox Sports understands that discussions have already taken place concerning the blockbuster friendly fixtures – which are slated to be played in September and October – and that confirmation will soon be forthcoming.
It was announced that the Holger Osieck’s side will tackle tournament hosts Brazil at Estadio Nacional Mane Garrinchain in Brasilia on September 7, their Independence Day, with the match against France expected to scheduled for either October 12th or the 16th.
The Socceroos haven’t come face-to-face with Les Blues in over 12-years since 1-1 draw at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in 200, with that coming shortly after beating them at the 2001 Confederations Cup.
It was at the same tournament that ex-national team coach Frank Farina led his team to a memorable 1-0 over Brazil with the Samba Boys running out 2-0 winners when they last met at the 2006 World Cup in Germany.
Going up against the two nations, who’ve lifted a combined six World Cups, will give Osieck and his players an idea as to the standard they must meet at world football’s showpiece event next summer.
