The match will coincide with the Socceroos’ match against Lebanon in Sydney, which would be Tim Cahill’s farewell to international football.

Football Federation Australia chief executive David Gallop said the FFA had helped facilitate the international match, which would serve as a warm-up for the 2019 Asian Cup to be held in the United Arab Emirates in January.

“It is a credit to our people and to the city of Brisbane that we have been able to lure another strong Asian football nation to Queensland to play,” Gallop said.

“Like Australia, Korea Republic, Uzbekistan, as well as Lebanon who the Caltex Socceroos will play in Sydney, are preparing for next year’s AFC Asian Cup in the United Arab Emirates.

“To have four of the 24 competing nations coming to Australia just two months before the tournament is a credit to the type of facilities and organisation Australia can provide.”
