Luís fabiano and Lúcio in training for Brazil

Brazil take on Tanzania in their final friendly before their World Cup campaign gets underway in just over a week.

While the competition have been losing key players through injury, nothing serious has befallen the Brazil squad in their build up to South Africa. Minor knocks to Juan, Michel Bastos and first choice keeper, Júlio César, should not present a major problem before the tournament begins. But César has been left out of today’s game and Tottenham keeper Gomes comes in.

Tanzania face Brazil only 24 hours after their 1-0 loss to Ruanda in the African Cup but there should be around 57,000 in the Nacional Benjamin Mkapa stadium for the visit of Brazil.

Keeper Mohamed Mwarami, midfielders Henry Joseph and Danny Mrwanda, and forward, Nizar Khalfan, are all available to coach Marcio Máximo and should start.

Tanzania (possible): Mwarami, Shaddrack, Haroub, Kelvin, Stefano, Abdulahim, Joseph, Ngassa, Nizzar, Kig, Mgosi

Coach: Marcio Máximo

Brazil (probable): Gomes, Maicon, Lúcio, Juan, Michel Bastos, Gilberto Silva, Felipe Melo, Elano, Kaká, Robinho, Luis Fabiano

Coach: Dunga

Venue:  Nacional Benjamin Mkapa stadium, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

Kick off: 12:00 (Brasília) 16:00 (London) 18:00 local time
officials: Mohammed Sseggonga, Desire Gahungu, Felicien Kabanda

Entry filed under: Brazil World Cup 2010. Tags: , .

    Hi there,

    My name is Drew Tyler. I am interested in writing some articles for your site. I have been playing soccer for most of my life, and now coach my son’s team. I am a die-hard soccer fan and follow most games; EPL, MLS, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga and of course the WORLD CUP! To top it all off, I am a high school English teacher. (So you’ll never have to worry about receiving grammatical errors from me!) I can provide you with examples of my work.

    Please let me know if you are interested in having me write for your site. Thank you.

    I hope to hear from you soon.

    Kind regards,

    Drew Tyler
