England to play Brazil
 Women's Football England International News - 6 Sep 2019
 
England are to play South American champions Brazil at Middlesbrough's Riverside Stadium on Saturday 5th October [kick off 12.45pm].
 
The fixture will be the Lionesses' first home match since the FIFA World Cup.  Brazil will provide another stern test on home soil for Phil Neville's squad ahead the visit of Germany to England in November.
 
Phil Neville said: "It is great to be able to have secured this fixture against such opposition. I know a lot of work has gone into making it happen. Brazil will provide a different test to the other games we have lined up over the coming months, and it is always a special occasion when our two countries meet.
 
"I am also delighted that we will be playing in the north east, a real footballing hotbed that has produced so many of our players over the years."
 
The Riverside Stadium is used to welcoming Brazilian flair with Middlesbrough having been home to the likes of men's stars Juninho, Emerson and Branco in the 1990s. The Great Britain men's football team played Brazil in Middlesbrough in July 2012 in their only warm up match for the London Olympics, while Team GB women hosted Sweden beforehand as part of a double header at the Riverside Stadium.
 
It will be the third head-to-head between the nations in the last year, with Beth Mead's winner giving England a 2-1 success at the SheBelieves Cup in Philadelphia in February after Fran Kirby had struck the only goal in a 1-0 victory at Notts County on 7th October last year in a friendly international.
 
While the fixture will help Phil Neville in his early preparations for UEFA EURO 2021 on home soil, the match will also provide vital experience for Team GB planning. Brazil have also qualified for next summer's Olympic Games in Tokyo and will be fancied to challenge for the medal positions after their success in the last Copa América Femenina. 
 
The clash with Brazil comes on the back of two away fixtures for England's Lionesses. Belgium held England to a 3-3 draw at the Den Dreef Stadium in Leuven last week, but the second friendly ended in a 2-1 defeat to Norway in Bergen.
 
The fixture is likely to be the first in a double header of friendlies for England in October, before they play Germany in a prestige friendly international at Wembley Stadium the following month.
