Unconfirmed reports from a Colombian journalist claim the Socceroos will face the South American giants in a pre-World Cup friendly in March.
The Colombians, currently ranked 13th in the world by FIFA, played their last two friendlies against Asian nations, losing to South Korea before defeating China on the 10th and 14th of November respectively.
Despite strenghtening their reputation as one of CONMEBOL's fiercest competitors over the past few years, as the breeding ground for superstars like James Rodriguez and Radamel Falcao, Los Cafeteros scraped through qualifying for the 2018 World Cup, finishing one point above Peru in fifth, and Chile in sixth.
The 4-0 win against China also broke a winless streak for Jose Pekerman's men stretching back to June, so the Colombians may be looking to build some much needed confidence against a traditionally smaller nation leading into the World Cup.
The reports are currently unconfirmed by Football Federation Australia, however should a friendly against Colombia go ahead, it would give the Socceroos a great opportunity to face a football powerhouse before their first group match against France.
A falta de firma, Australia será el segundo rival de Colombia en la fecha FIFA de marzo. El primero será Francia @AlargueCaracol— Diego Rueda (@diegonoticia) December 23, 2017
