Stamford Bridge will play host to Brazil and Russia in March

Fans in London will get another first hand opportunity to see Neymar when Chelsea's home hosts Brazil

It sounds as if Chelsea's Stamford Bridge will play host to the Brazilian national team in the near future. According to Paulo Freitas, it will be used as the venue when Russia and Brazil meet for a friendly on March 25, 2013.

Quite a few of the Brazilian contingent already call Stamford Bridge home, so it will be nice to see an international break which doesn't see half of our squad becoming jet-lagged. It will also be nice to see players like Neymar playing in Chelsea's home, especially as the next several years will almost certainly see him moving to Europe.

This matchup will surely draw a nice crowd, which can only help bring in some additional money for the club. If we're going to have to release our players for meaningless friendlies anyway, we might as well make some money off of them.
