The Canadians last squared off against Australia during the 1993 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers. Canada was eliminated from FIFA World Cup Qualifiers after falling 1-4 to Australia on kicks from the penalty mark. After each home side won 2:1 in the home-and-away series, the last match went to extra time and then kicks from the penalty mark to decide a series winner. Dale Mitchell (55th) also made his final appearance for Canada at that match.

This match will be part of a second camp under Coach Benito Floro. The camp will run from 11-16 October.
