LONDON - Five-times world champions Brazil
will play Scotland for the first time since the 1998 World Cup
when they meet in a friendly at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium on
March 27, the Scottish Football Association said on Tuesday.
"This game will not only capture the imagination of the
Scotland support but also the squad, who will relish the
prospect of testing their skills against one of the finest
international teams in world football," Scotland coach Craig
Levein said in a statement.
Mano Menezes's Brazil team are preparing to defend their
Copa America title in Argentina in July having lost their last
two friendlies 1-0 to both Argentina and France.
"The opportunity to play Brazil was irresistible," added
Brazil also have a friendly at home on June 4 against the
Netherlands, the South American team's conquerors in the 2010
World Cup quarter-finals in South Africa.
