Australia will host European champion Greece on May 25 as part of its preparations for the FIFA World Cup in Germany this year. Greece was the surprise winner of the 2004 European Championship but failed to qualify for the World Cup through European Group 2. Australia qualified for its first World Cup finals since 1974 by defeating Uruguay in a playoff. The match will be played at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in a city with a large population of people of Greek extraction. (AP)
