Germany says it will host US soccer in June

World Cup champion Germany says it will host the United States in an exhibition game in June.

Team manager Oliver Bierhoff made the announcement Tuesday. He also said Germany will play Australia on March 25 in Kaiserslautern, four days before its European Championship qualifier at Georgia.

While the U.S. Soccer Federation has had discussions with Germany's governing body, the Deutscher Fussball Bund, the USSF does not announce exhibitions until a contract has been signed.

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