The Japan Football Association announced Thursday that the men’s national team will play Jamaica and Brazil in October.

Japan will host Jamaica on Oct. 10 in Niigata at Denka Big Swan Stadium and will play Brazil four days later in Singapore. Japan lost its last game against Brazil at the 2013 Confederations Cup. Brazil, which is currently managed by former Jubilo Iwata man Dunga, has won eight of the 10 games between the two nations, while there have been two draws.
