Brazil x France: probable starting line-ups 9 June 2013
Brazil take on France on Sunday in the Grêmio Arena in Porto Alegre. All 53,000 tickets were sold for the South American’s final test before they start their Confederations Cup campaign against Japan on June 15th.
Felipão is expected to make one change from the team that started in the 2-2 draw with England last weekend with left-back Marcelo coming in for Filipe Luís.
France got the better of Brazil in the World Cups of 1986, 1998 and 2006. The lack of competitive matches, coupled with poor results, means that Brazil have now dropped to an all-time low of 22nd in the FIFA world ranking.
