Official: Brazil to meet Turkey in Istanbul

The Gillette Brasil Global Tour can confirm its second post-World Cup fixture with the Selecao set to meet The Crescent-Stars in November
The latest fixture in the Gillette Brasil Global Tour has been confirmed as the TFF (Turkish Football Federation) will host the CBF (Confederação Brasileira de Futebol) in Istanbul on 12th November of this year.

The match will be the sixth between the two nations since they first met in 1956 and although the Brazil team are unbeaten throughout, they have not won a match against Turkey since the FIFA World Cup 2002, when current coach Scolari was back in charge and he and his team brought the trophy home.

The venue and kick-off time for the game are still to be confirmed.

The fixture is the second post-World Cup Gillette Brasil Global Tour date to be confirmed, with Brazil's Superclasico de las Americas clash with Argentina at the Bird's Nest Stadium in Beijing scheduled for October 11.
