FFF President Reveals France Will Play Two Friendlies In Brazil Next Year, One Against The Seleção
French Football Federation President Noël Le Graët revealed that France would play two friendlies in Brazil next year, including one against the Seleção, according to the JDD. Le Graët said, "It is not finalized, but it should be within a month. We are wanting to do it, and Brazil is happy to welcome us." The second friendly could be against Uruguay or perhaps England, "which will also be present during the same time frame" to play Brazil. When asked about playing England in Brazil, Le Graët said, "It is definitely a possibility." The dates still need to be figured out. They will have to be after the end of the European leagues (June 1), but before the Confederations Cup (June 15). The time of the matches is also in question, as they have to be "acceptable" to audiences in Brazil and France (JDD, 10/6).
