Thanks for joining us for the penultimate day of the Confeds. Join us tomorrow for the fantastic finale to this year's competition from Brazil, as the hosts look to overcome FIFA World Cup holders Spain, while Italy face off against Uruguay in the match for third place.
We'll leave you with an image of the Maracana, the venue for tomorrow's showdown between Vicente Del Bosque's men and Luiz Felipe Scolari's side.
VICENTE DEL BOSQUE EXCLUSIVE
In terms of titles, [Brazil] are the ‘fathers’ of football and we’re still getting started, but the game will still begin 0-0.
Claudio Marchisio has been ruled out of tomorrow's match for third place.
WHAT YOU'RE SAYING
Here's what our FIFA.com Club members have been saying ahead of tomorrow's Final.
BONUCCI AND SUAREZ SPEAK
Suarez: Every time we pull on the Celeste shirt we want to win and claiming third place would really mean a lot to us.
I don’t know what it’s going to be like. I don’t know if I’m going to cry. I do know it’s going to be emotional, though.
The last time Brazil met Spain was in a 1999 friendly match in Vigo, Spain.
