Soccer-Brazil to face Argentina in Australia friendly in June

SAO PAULO, Feb 9 (Reuters) - Brazil will play Argentina in an international friendly on June 9 in Australia, the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) said on Thursday. “The stage for the game will be the Melbourne Cricket Ground, an arena with a capacity for 100,000 people,” the CBF said. South America’s two most high profile teams frequently play friendly matches in neutral venues.

Argentina currently top the FIFA rankings, with Brazil in second. (Reporting by Andrew Downie; Editing by Greg Stutchbury)
