Fans can watch the Brazil vs. France soccer match live online and see which team wins the rematch of the 1998 World Cup final, this time in much friendlier form.
The teams will meet as an exhibition match leading up to the Copa American and Euro 2016 tournament. The teams face off Wednesday at 4 p.m. EST (8 p.m. GMT) from Stade de France in Paris.
As Live Soccer TV noted, the game may just be an exhibition but is far from insignificant.
“There will be some big stars during the match, but probably none bigger than Barcelona star Neymar. The 23 year old has improved in leaps and bounds in recent years and played a pivotal role in Brazil’s World Cup campaign before getting injured.”
Neymar was particularly excited about the chance to face off against a strong opponent.
“I love to play games like this,” he said.
“Two huge national teams, and a packed stadium in the opponent’s home. It will be a great game.
“I remember the game and France’s three goals very well. We were all very sad at home. But this match has nothing to do with 1998. That story has been overcome. Brazil are five-time world champions.”
“These are very important matches to see where we need to improve and where we still have problems. These will be matches at a very high level and a good test.”
Fans who watch the Brazil vs. France soccer match live online will see a French team playing without pressure. As host of the Euro 2016, they are automatically qualified, but that hasn’t stopped them from playing strong against some top opponents.
“They’ve certainly been in top form of late, though, defeating Spain, Portugal, and Sweden in their various autumn friendlies,” noted Noel C of the Liverpool Offside blog. “In fact, they haven’t lost a match since last summer’s World Cup, where their impressive run was ended by Germany in a 1-0 quarter-final defeat.”
Brazil has also rebounded well from their demoralizing defeat to Germany in the World Cup. They have played well in a series of international matches, including wins over Colombia, Argentina, Japan, and Turkey.
