Brazil will be looking to secure the first phase of the international break on a high note as they face Peru in an international friendly.
The two South American nations locked horns a couple of months ago in the final of the Copa America in which Brazil emerged as the champions of the tournament.
The five-time world cup winners squared off against Colombia in their most recent game which ended in a 2-2 draw.
Peru, on the other hand, suffered a 1-0 defeat to Ecuador as they would want to redeem themselves versus Brazil before they go on to face Uruguay.
The game between Brazil and Peru will take place on September 10 at 8:30 (IST). The two football nations will confront one another at the LA Coliseum in Los Angeles.

Brazil and Peru have faced each other on 46 separate occasions. Brazil has got the edge over its counterpart with 33 wins in contrast to Peru’s four wins, tagged along with nine draws in totality.
Peru has won just one game against Brazil in their last 20 encounters as they’ve endured six draws and 13 losses in that phase.
With Neymar bagging a goal against Colombia, the PSG star-man is now just a strike away from equaling Ronaldo’s record of 62 goals with Brazil.
As Neymar continues to go strong, the talisman is also likely to go past Pele’s record of 77 goals for the nation.
For Peru, Raul Ruidiaz will be pivotal in front of goal along with Edison Flores who will have to power through the left flank.
As Brazil continue their 17-game unbeaten streak, it will take some serious skill and perseverance from Peru to bring an end to the streak.
Even though Tite might come up with some changes in the lineup against Peru, the quality and depth in the squad shouldn’t be a problem for the mighty Brazilians to brush aside Peru.
