James Holland is thoroughly excited about this weekend's meeting between Australia and Brazil.

The Austria Vienna midfielder and his Socceroos teammates take on the Samba Kings in Brasilia on Saturday (Sunday 5:00am AEST) and he is well aware just how tough an ask it will be.

"I think it will be a really good platform to test ourselves," Holland said.

"It's a team that doesn't need an introduction, five-time world champions, you look at the team on paper and they've got some of the best players in the world at the moment.

"I think for us it's a great opportunity to test ourselves and see where we are and hopefully help us work towards the World Cup next year."
