Brazil begin their quest for a sixth World Cup on Saturday morning UK time as they take on a crisis-hit Bolivian side in Belem. It marks a transitional era for the Seleção, who will be led by Neymar on the pitch and by Fernando Diniz on the bench, who is taking temporary charge as they await Carlo Ancelotti. The Verde arrive in the same week that their domestic league has been suspended due to match fixing allegations.
The last time the sides met, Brazil ran out comfortable 4-0 winners in La Paz and the last time they faced off on Brazilian soil it was a 5-0 thumping in favour of the Canarinha. Spectators will want to see if Neymar can break Pelé’s long-standing record as all-time topscorer for the Seleção. Going into the game both players have chalked up 77 goals for the five-time World Cup Winners.
The game will be played on Friday, September 8th at the Mangueirão in Belém, Pará with kick off scheduled for 21:45 local time 20:45 ET and Saturday morning 01:45am UK time/01:45 Nigeria/06:15 India

Instead each individual association sells the rights as they see fit. This can make it hard to know where to catch the game as it varies depending on the team in action, this article provides information on what options are available to users in the UK, US and India.
