In 1957 the Australian side played against three visiting club sides. The three clubs were FK Austria (Austria), Ferencvaros (Hungary) and Eastern Athletic (Hong Kong). The FK Austria touring squad contained Leo Baumgartner, Walter Tamandl, Karl Jaros and Andy Sagi whose improper transfer to Sydney clubs in 1958 ultimately led to Australias suspension from FIFA.
