Brazil will face Japan on November 10 as the Chevrolet Brasil Global Tour returns to Europe.

The five-time world champions will host the Samurai Blue at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy in Lille.

Brazil and Japan first met in 1989, when the Selecao ran out 1-0 winners in Rio de Janeiro.

The two sides have faced off on a further 10 occasions since then, with their last meeting being on the Brasil Global Tour in 2014, when Neymar hit all four goals in a 4-0 win in Singapore.

November's clash in Lille will be the penultimate match of 2017 for the Selecao, with a second fixture that same month set to be confirmed by Brasil Global Tour presently.

The double-header will be the first of just three sets of friendly fixtures left for coach Tite to prepare his Brazil side for next year’s World Cup.
