Qatar to play historic friendly against Brazil ahead of Copa America

Asian champions Qatar will play Brazil in an international friendly at the Mané Garrincha Stadium in Brasilia on June 5, Qatar Football Association (QFA) said.

The clash will allow Qatar take on a challenger and provide match practice ahead of this year’s Copa America in which Qatar is one of the participating teams.

Brazil will host the Copa America from June 14 to July 7, 2019.

“The match is an ideal opportunity for Al Annabi to get match practice before it commences its participation in the Copa America,” QFA said.


Qatar will play against Argentina, Colombia and Paraguay in one of the two groups of 2019 Copa America.

Copa America is the oldest international continental football competition. The competition determines the continental champion of South America. Since the 1990s, teams from North America and Asia have also been invited to participate.
