SOC­CEROOS coach Ange Postecoglou was in Perth last week to check out Perth Oval ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qual­i­fier against Bangladesh in Septem­ber.

Sport and Recre­ation Min­is­ter Mia Davies wel­comed Mr Postecoglou to Perth.

Ms Davies said the State Gov­ern­ment was proud to have se­cured the match and looked for­ward to see­ing the 2015 AFC Asian Cup cham­pi­ons in ac­tion in Perth for the first time in 10 years.

“The Soc­ceroos and foot­ball’s pop­u­lar­ity has soared in the past decade and we ex­pect there will be a huge amount of in­ter­est in this match,” she said.
