Brazil will tackle their FIFA World Cup™ conquerors the Netherlands in a friendly match next June, Brazilian Football Federation (CBF) president Ricardo Teixeira announced today.

The game on 4 June will take place in one of the 12 stadiums that will be used to host matches at FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brazil.

The CBF also confirmed friendly matches against France in Paris on 9 February and against Germany in Stuttgart on 10 August.

In July, Brazil will compete in the Copa America in Argentina, where they will be bidding to win their third consecutive continental crown.

Brazil and the Netherlands met in the quarter-finals of the 2010 FIFA World Cup in Port Elizabeth, South Africa last July, when Dunga's heavily fancied Brazil team were beaten 2-1.

Dunga has since been replaced as coach by Mano Menezes, but Dutch coach Bert van Marwijk - whose side were beaten 1-0 by Spain in the final - remains in his role.
