Argentina will face Brazil in a friendly on June 9 at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. It will be the second match for both teams at the new Meadowlands stadium. Brazil beat the USA, 2-0, in August 2010, and the USA rallied to tie Argentina, 1-1, last March.

Argentina didn’t say which players would participate. It has changed coaches since the U.S. match, replacing Sergio Batista with Alejandro Sabella. It has seven points in four games under Sabella. Its next qualifier is against Ecuador a week before the Brazil friendly.

Argentina also has plans to play Switzerland in Bern on Feb. 29, Germany on Aug. 15 at a site to be announced and Saudi Arabia in Riyadh on Nov. 14.
