Brazil and Argentina to meet in mini-tournament

The National Football Confederation says Brazil and Argentina

will face each other in a two-game mini-tournament in

September.

A statement posted on the confederation’s website says both

teams will be formed only of players that play in the two countries

and not those who play overseas.

It quotes coach Mano Menezes as saying that the ”Superclassic

of The Americas” will allow him to observe players that have

potential but who have not had a chance to play for the national

squad.

Argentina will host the first game on Sept. 14. The second game

will be played two weeks later in Brazil’s northern city of

Belem.
