Several youngsters are in the squad for the match in Brasilia.
Australia skipper Lucas Neill has urged the young Socceroos in the squad to face Brazil to grasp the life-changing opportunity that could await them in Sundays friendly.
The 35 year-old defender is the oldest outfield player in Holger Osieck’s 22-man party that will go toe-to-toe with the 2014 World Cup hosts and believes they have earned the right to face a team of the five-time world champions’ eminence.
Neill also feels it is the perfect setting for the younger members of Osieck’s group – rewarded for their impressive performances at the East Asian Cup in July – to expand their football education and make a name for themselves on a global stage.
“That’s football, you get a chance you have to take that chance,” he told The World Game. “You impress and it opens up a much bigger opportunity. Now the opportunity is there to impress in Brazil and from there, for these young guys, one good performance could change their life.
“Everyone around the world will be watching Brazil but what if an Australian does well and he gets picked up and then goes to play for one of these fantastic teams –that’s football.”
Neill is the only player in the squad to feature in Australia’s last game against Brazil during the group stage of the 2006 World Cup in Germany.
