Brazil will continue their build-up to the FIFA World Cup™ with a friendly against the Republic of Ireland at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium on Tuesday 2 March.

International sports event promoter Kentaro has confirmed the London venue will be used for the game, which was announced late last year.

The fixture is something of a coup for Ireland, who will also face Argentina at the Aviva Stadium - the newly-revamped Lansdowne Road - on 11 August.
