FIFA’s vote on awarding the 2018 World Cup to Germany has put Australia’s national team in the hot seat.
The Socceroos have qualified for the tournament by beating England, Uruguay and Colombia.
The result could have major implications for Australia’s chances of advancing to the next round, where the nation has only one game to play.
But there’s one thing that Australia needs to know before the 2019 World Cup: The game will be played on artificial turf.
The FIFA decision to send the tournament’s host country to Germany in 2019 will affect the field, but not the players.
There is a loophole in the rules that allows Australia to play on artificial grass if it’s the only way to get there.
The 2018 World, the last of the 20-team tournament, is played on grass.
The World Cup has only been played on turf since 2010, when Australia’s team played on the turf of Qatar.
This year’s tournament will be held on artificial surface in Russia.
Socceroos coach Ange Postecoglou, who was in charge of Australia’s bid, was asked during a question and answer session during the press conference to discuss the situation.
He said the FIFA decision was a ‘sensible one’ and the decision was made after consultation with the players and the national team.
“This was the first time that we’ve had to make that decision.
It was the right decision for Australia,” Postecog said.
“We’re going to make the best of it and look forward to the game being played on an artificial surface.” “
The FIFA World Cup was the biggest sporting event in history and played out in a total of 55 stadiums. “

The Australian players and coaches were left out, with only the host nation’s team being given the chance to play in a pre-tournament friendly.
The 2022 tournament will take place on artificial surfaces in Australia, South Korea and Qatar.
Socceroo John van ‘t Schip said he was happy with the result, but would have preferred to see the game played on clay.
“I am not saying that the grass will be the only surface for the World cup,” Van ‘t Stiepe said.
“But the grass has to be the last option, I guess, for the game.”
The FIFA decision is one of the most significant sporting events of the year for Australia, and it could impact the 2018 FIFA World Ranking for the Socceroos.
The Football Association of Australia has released a statement saying the decision has been made in accordance with FIFA rules, and Australia has been informed.
“Following FIFA’s consultation with Australia and the Socceroo’s coaching staff, it was decided to play the match on grass at the 2018 AFC Asian Cup,” the statement said.
