Football: Brazilian Olympic football team to play friendly against Singapore
SINGAPORE: Brazil’s star—studded football team will be in Singapore for a friendly match against Singapore’s national team.
The Lions will face some of the world’s best players such as Ronaldinho and Robinho in the match on July 28.
Singapore is the first of two acclimatisation stops before the Brazil team heads to Beijing for the Olympics.
The match will take place at the National Stadium.
Tickets range from $60 to $120.
The team will fly to Vietnam for the second game on July 29.
Singapore’s efficiency and safety plus the country being in the same time zone as Beijing helped woo one of the world’s most popular teams to its shores.
Winston Lee, general secretary of Football Association of Singapore, said: "We started negotiations with the agent in May and we had to contend with a few big countries in Asia and Europe. We are happy, of course, today to announce we have secured Brazil to play in Singapore on July 28."

"On his way out from training Hank Walcott was looking so eagerly for his girlfriend that he did not see the water hose the groundsman had brought out. He tripped over it and injured his ankle so badly he will be unable to train or play matches for 9 days."
