The Brasil Global Tour will travel to the Middle East in October as the Selecao resume one of football's great rivalries

The Chevrolet Brasil Global Tour will resume next month with a double-header in Saudi Arabia.

Brazil will meet their hosts in Riyadh on October 12 before doing battle with Argentina in Jeddah on October 16.

A Selecao have faced Saudi Arabia on four previous occasions, wining all four. The two sides last came together in 2002, when Djalminha scored the only goal of the game.

The contest will take place at the famous King Saud University stadium.

Brazil will then renew one of world football’s great rivalries when they face Argentina at King Abdullah Sports City.

The South American giants last clashed on the Brasil Global Tour in 2017, when Argentina emerged 1-0 winners against an experimental Brazil side in Melbourne, Australia.

The Brazilian Football Confederation also confirmed that, for these two matches, players involved in the Copa do Brasil final will not be eligible for selection.
