Brazil set for friendlies in Zimbabwe, Tanzania

Brazil set for friendlies in Zimbabwe, Tanzania

Brazil says it will play friendly internationals in Zimbabwe and Tanzania next week as part of its World Cup preparations, but officials would not disclose how much appearance money the five-time World Cup winner will receive from Zimbabwe.
A spokesman for the Brazil team, which arrived in South Africa early Thursday, confirmed the matches against Zimbabwe in Harare on June 2 and against Tanzania on June 7.
In Zimbabwe, tourism minister Walter Mzembi also said Brazil would visit but would not say exactly how much Zimbabwe had paid Brazil _ only that part of it was funded by the government and part by sponsors.
Mzembi said earlier this month that Brazil had asked for a $1.8 million appearance fee to play in Zimbabwe.
