SAO PAULO (AP) - Brazil will end the year with friendlies against Turkey in Istanbul and Austria in Vienna.

The Brazilian football confederation said Tuesday that the five-time world champions will play Turkey on Nov. 12 and Austria on Nov. 18.

It will be the fifth and sixth matches since coach Dunga took over the national team after Brazil’s disappointing finish at the World Cup on home soil.

Brazil beat Ecuador and Colombia in the first friendlies after the World Cup. The Selecao will play Argentina on Saturday at the Bird’s Nest in Beijing and Japan three days later in Singapore.

The match against Argentina is dubbed the Superclassic of the Americas, which is organized annually by CONMEBOL, the governing body of football in South America.

Brazil’s first official tournament is next year’s Copa America in Chile.
