Wales v Australia


The the Commonwealth Football Association was formed in 1911 but was superseded by the Australian Soccer Football Association, which was formed in 1921 becoming members of FIFA in 1956, however in 1960, the association disbanded after being suspended from FIFA for the poaching of players from overseas.

In 1961 the Australian Soccer Federation was formed and admitted to FIFA in 1963. In 1995, the Australian Soccer Federation formally changed its name to Soccer Australia.

Australia's first official international game was a 3-1 defeat in a friendly match away to New Zealand in June 1922.
