Brazil confirm friendlies against South Korea, Zambia

Rio de Janeiro, Sep 10 (IANS) Brazil's football confederation (CBF) has announced the 'Selecao' will play international friendlies against South Korea and Zambia next month.

The clash against South Korea will be Oct 12 in Seoul before the Zambia duel in Beijing three days later, the CBF confirmed Monday, reports Xinhua.

Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari is expected to experiment with his squad for the matches. The 2002 World Cup-winning manager last week revealed six or seven spots were yet to be confirmed for next year's World Cup.

South Korea are currently World No.34 while Zambia are five places further back.

Fresh from their 6-0 whitewash of Australia Saturday, the Selecao will meet Portugal in an international friendly in Boston Tuesday.
