BERLIN (AP) — World Cup champion Germany will begin its international season next year with a friendly against Australia in March.

Team manager Oliver Bierhoff says the match will be on March 25 in Kaiserslautern. Germany travels to Georgia four days later for a 2016 European Championship qualifier.

United States will be hosted in June, with the date and venue still to be set.

Germany beat the U.S. 1-0 in its final group match at the World Cup in Brazil before going on to win the title in July.
