Johannesburg, 27 May 2010 - The 2010 FIFA World Cup Organising Committee South Africa (OC), represented by its Chairman, Dr Irvin Khoza, welcomed Brazil’s Seleção as they arrived in the country this morning (27 May) at OR Tambo International Airport for the 2010 FIFA World Cup™.
“I am very impressed by the Brazilian team. You can see that they are confident and serious about this tournament. There is only one thing the coach (Dunga) said when the team arrived and that is, ‘we are ready’. The arrival of Brazil gives great confidence to all South Africans that this World Cup is really happening,” said Khoza.
The five times World Cup champions will open up their campaign against Korea DPR at Ellis Park stadium on 15 June, moving to Soccer City stadium to play Cote d’Ivoire on 20 June. They will then travel to Durban to face Portugal on 25 June for their final Group Match.
