Croatia will play 5-time World Cup winners Brazil as they build up to the World Cup in Russia.

Croatia and Brazil will meet in a friendly on 3 June 2018 at Anfield, the home of Liverpool FC in England, daily Jutarnji list reports.

Croatia first played against Brazil in August 2005 in a friendly at Poljud stadium in Split which ended in a 1-1 draw.
The following year in Germany at the World Cup Brazil got the better of Croatia thanks to a Kaka strike.
