Australia will host Brazil at MCG on June 13 before the Confederations Cup

AUSTRALIA will play football powerhouse Brazil at the MCG in June in the lead-up to the Confederations Cup.

The Socceroos will meet Brazil on June 13 in a friendly, with the South American giants in Melbourne for a blockbuster clash with Argentina four days earlier.

Australia last met the world No.2 side in 2013 when Brazil won 6-0 in Brasilia, the penultimate game in Holger Osieck’s reign before he was sacked and replaced by Ange Postecoglou for the 2014 World Cup campaign.

Australia also played Brazil at the 2006 World Cup in Germany, where they were edged 2-0 in their second group game under Guus Hiddink and last met Brazil on home soil at the 1988 Bicentenary Gold Cup, losing 1-0 at the Olympic Stadium in Melbourne.

The match will be the Socceroos’ farewell before they head to Russia for the Confederations Cup, where they are going to face Cameroon, Chile and Germany.

Headlined by Neymar, Brazil will boast a wealth of world class talent that will arrive in Melbourne. Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino, Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus, Chelsea’s David Luiz and Willian and Juventus’ Dani Alves are some of the headline acts from the Premier League, La Liga and Serie set to hit our shores.

The Socceroos clash will be four days after Brazil take on arch rivals Argentina, which will pit Neymar against his Barcelona colleague Lionel Messi.
