The Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) has announced that Brazil will meet Spain and Italy in friendlies later this year.

The exact dates have yet to be set but the matches will take place in October and November and will be played in Europe (possibly London).

After the Copa America, the South Americans next fixture will be a meeting with Germany in Stuttgart on August 10th. In September, Brazil take on Argentina in the Copa Roca in Buenos Aires and a Brazilian city (yet to be decided).

    Although they are International Friendlies, Brasil, unlike countries such as England has not shyed away from facing the best that the world has to offer. Looks like quite an exciting list of matches.

    Being Italian it will be interesting how Italia fares against the world’s best. The Argentina & Germany games should be exciting and how about when Brasil takes on the current number one in Spain. It doesn’t get any better than this.

    Brasil has a very young squad, a team in transition and there is no better way to amp it up than to take on some of the best squads in football. Clearly Brasil could have played a bunch of punching bags but the host side for the 2014 World Cup are determined to be primed to win their sixth cup.

    The big winner of this list of games are the fans of both Brasil & football.

    Oh! We can’t win all these match with this young squad. Mano, where is Kaka, Ronaldinho, Diego, Bastos, Marcelo, Gilvato, Anderson, Alex and so on, or all they were retired from football or it’s selfishness. Mano really Dunga is very far better than you.

    Look at our last two Copa Amerian match, unfortunately, you mean you’ll face Spain current number FIFA ranking, Germany, Italy and Argentina with that team and thinking of win.

    I think we can beat them,cuz kaka is coming soon and now hes 110% recovered,with Ganso and kaka playing at AMD and Neymar and Pato as strikers in a formation of 442 would be very beautiful,God bless you seleção!
