The Republic of Ireland will face Brazil in a friendly at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium on Tuesday, March 2.

International sports event promoter Kentaro has confirmed the London venue will be used for the game, which was announced late last year.

The fixture is something of a coup for Ireland, who will also face Argentina at the Aviva Stadium - the newly-revamped Lansdowne Road - on August 11.
