Brazil coach Mano Menezes

The Brazilian Football Confederation has announced that Brazil will take on Holland on 4th June next year. This will be the first meeting between the two since the Europeans knocked Brazil out of the quarter-finals of the World Cup earlier this year.

The venue has yet to be decided but the cities of São Paulo or Porto Alegre are likely to stage the game.

    May i think aloud? I think that Technico Menezes will have Ronaldo play in one more home friendly to have him have a send off in front of his fans.

    Potentially this could be the classic Brazil vs Netherlands all-attacking game that we never got to see at the World Cup. At the very least Brazil should be a little more expressive!
