Players of the Brazilian national football team began arriving in Korea this week ahead of a friendly match with Korea at Seoul World Cup Stadium on Saturday evening.
Brazil's head coach Luiz Felipe Scolari arrived in Korea on Monday with 15 of his players including Barcelona's Neymar and Daniel Alves, and Real Madrid's Marcelo. The remaining eight players, including Chelsea's Oscar, David Luiz and Ramires, and Tottenham's Paulinho, will join them on Tuesday.
The team will train for an hour every day at a football field in Paju, Gyeonggi Province. On Friday, they have a final practice session at the World Cup Stadium to acclimatize to the conditions there.
As online tickets have almost sold out, except for 3,000 allotted for on-the-spot purchases on the day, the 62,000-capacity stadium is expected to be packed for the first time in six years. This has not happened since a game against the Netherlands in June 2007.
