International Friendly: Brazil vs. Tanzania Live Stream [UPDATED]
Brazil vs. Tanzania Live Stream: Five-time World Cup champions Brazil will face minnows Tanzania this afternoon in its final warmup before heading to South Africa, and coach Dunga may rest some of his regular starters to protect them ahead of football’s grandest event which starts on June 11. The South Americans face North Korea, Ivory Coast and Portugal in their first round group.
Brazil is heavily favored to win this friendly but can Tanzania spring an upset?
The Taifa Stars are currently ranked 108th in the FIFA world rankings and they have been making a lot of progress. Brazil, on the the other hand, is arguably the most popular national football team on the planet which boasts superstars like Kaka, Robinho and Thiago Silva.
Meanwhile, Inter Milan goalkeeper Julio Cesar will miss today’s match after hurting his back in the Samba Kings’ 3-0 win over Zimbabwe in midweek. However, Dunga confirmed that 30-year-old’s injury is not serious and is likely to be fit for their opening match against North Korea.
UPDATE: Robinho scored twice as Brazil thrashed Tanzania 5-1 in their last friendly before the World Cup.
