thumbnail Hello,

The players have jetted in from around the world and focus has now turned to the training ground ahead of Saturday’s clash at the Seoul World Cup Stadium

The Brazil squad have arrived in Seoul for the next leg of the Brasil Global Tour, which will see them meet South Korea on Saturday.

Real Madrid full-back Marcelo and Barcelona teammates Neymar and Dani Alves landed on Sunday evening after a 12-hour flight.

“The trip was tiring but it’s worth it to play for Brazil,” Neymar told Globo of their journey from Spain, which included a stop in Paris.

"It is a great pleasure to be here in Seoul," added Dani Alves on Twitter. "I hope everything goes well. Thanks for the love and the welcome."

The trio signed autographs and posed for photos with local fans before heading to the hotel where they were joined by number of domestic-based players on Monday morning.

Jefferson, Diego Cavalieri, Victor, Dede, Henrique, Alexandre Pato and Jo, along with coach Luiz Felipe Scolari, landed in the capital after a long trip from Brazil.

“We spent a long time lying down, but you don’t sleep very well,” revealed Corinthians striker Pato. “Now I'll rest well to be ready for training.”

“It was a long journey,” added Cruzeiro stopper Dede. “[But] it’s worth it because of the anticipation and excitement I feel. I am anxious and glad to be called up.”

With the rest of the European-based players having jetted in, the focus has now turned to the training ground ahead of this weekend’s clash at the Seoul World Cup Stadium.

The Selecao will then meet Zambia in Beijing on October 15.
