RIO DE JANEIRO - Brazil will play an international friendly in China on October 15 against either Ghana or Zambia, the South American country's football confederation said on Friday.

The match will be played at the Beijing National Stadium, the showpiece venue for the 2008 Olympic Games, the Brazilian confederation (CBF) confirmed in a statement.

It will be Brazil's fourth outing after a 3-0 victory over Spain in the Confederations Cup final at Rio's Maracana stadium on June 30.

Luiz Felipe Scolari's team lost to Switzerland 1-0 in Basel on Wednesday. They will next meet Australia in Brasilia on September 7 followed by Portugal in Boston three days later.

The CBF earlier this month announced friendlies against South Africa and South Korea later this year. Dates for the matches are yet to be confirmed.
