Five-time world champions Brazil and five-time African champions Cameroon will face each other in an international friendly on 20 November 2018, Brazil FA (CBF) has confirmed.
The high profile international friendly between the two nations, arguably the best in their continents, will take place at the Milton Kings stadium London.
It will be the first meeting between the two nations since they last met in a world cup game which Brazil won by 4 goals to 1 in 2014 and it will be a meeting of PSG attacking mates Neymar Junior and Choupo Moting.
Brazil have won all 4 friendlies played since the end of the 2018 world cup beating USA, El Savador, Saudi Arabia and Argentina in that run while Cameroon have won 1 of 3 competitive games in the same period. The indomitable Lions picked up 2 draws against Comoros and Malawi plus a win at home to Malawi as new head Coach, Clarence Seedorf rebuilds for the 2019 AFCON in Cameroon.
The game will be Tite’s first game against an African side and “an oiler of his Brazilian machinery” ahead of the 2019 Copa America coincidentally on home soil.
Tite is expected to name his squad for the two friendlies this Friday but it’s unclear when Seedorf will name his squad to take on Moroccan away in Morocco before moving to England to face a Brazil side that will have faced neighbours, Uruguay 4 days earlier.
