With reports already suggesting that Brazil will take on Argentina at the MCG in June 2017, Brazilian daily Folha now claims that Tite's men will take on both Australia and Argentina.

The game would seemingly be a perfect warm-up for Ange Postecoglou's Socceroos, who will take part in the Confederations Cup - which runs from June 17 to July 2, 2017 - in Russia.

Earlier this month it was reported that Brazil would face Argentina at the MCG in June 2017, with one of the teams - which now appears to be Brazil - staying and playing Australia a few days after that clash.
