Brazil Global Tour 2013 – Matches and Tickets

Brazil will come to Europe and play international friendlies against Italy on Thursday, March 21st at the Stade de Genève in Switzerland and against Russia on Monday, March 25th at Stamford Bridge and as part of there Global Tour 2013.



Brazil are a team that over the years have tasted victory on almost every stage of the game. They are currently an underrated 18th in the FIFA World Rankings and have the players to take a game to any other international team. Luiz Felipe Scolari is the manager and Italy will be only his second game as he took charge for the second time of the National Team. Luis Felipe Scolari has the chance to lead his players out at the club he once managed. Scolari having been the last Brazil manger to lift a World Cup with Brazil in 2002. He is looking forward to returning and is hoping that victory against Russia will help direct them towards a 6th World Cup Title.


Brazil have come up against Italy 13 times, winning 5 and losing 4, drawing only twice. Italians and Brazilians come to a standstill when this game takes place, and some regard there being no greater rivalry on the International stage. The types of football have changed over the years, with Brazil no longer playing “samba” football. Many of the team have made their names playing European football. During the last World Cup Italy got dumped out in the first round and they will be looking to improve ahead of the 2014 World Cup against the host country Brazil. Italy have the fire power to beat Brazil, however Brazil are an upcoming footballing nation after a lapse in their success, and will have a point to prove that they should be ranked a lot higher than 18th in the world.


Russia will be playing Brazil in a friendly on the 25th March 2013 as part of their tour during their friendlies. With many of the Brazilian players playing in Europe, the trip to Stamford Bridge, the home of Chelsea Football Club will be welcomed as they won’t have to travel far to play. Russia will be a stern test for the Brazilian side as they are an upcoming footballing nation and have teams in their leagues heavily investing in players.
