Tunisia to face Brazil in friendly match in build to FIFA World Cup 2022
Tunisia’s national soccer team Carthage Eagles will play world’s largest FIFA World Cup winners Brazil in a friendly match on September 22 as both sides prepare for the 2022 world cup to take place in Qatar.
The fixture, according to Eric Frozio, correspondent of French media L’Equipe, Canal Plus in Brazil, will take place in France.
Latin American giants chose to play the match on September 22 after their world cup qualifier match against Argentina that was to be replayed on September 22 has been cancelled.
The two Latin american teams had their September 05, 2021 suspended only seven minutes into the game, for health reasons, during the pandemic.
The two teams reportedly have come into agreement with the world football governing body, FIFA, to cancel matches to be replayed as both are already qualified for the world cup.
After Tunisia, the team led by Paris Saint Germain (PSG) super star Neymar will play Algeria on September 27, also at a venue in France.
