FA may take 150th celebrations to Brazil

The English Football Association may take their 150th anniversary celebrations to Brazil after a proposed match against Argentina fell over.

The FA's 150th anniversary will occur in 2013 and it has been mooted that the England national team may take on the Samba kings in Brazil for the first time since 1984.

Argentina have said that the matches will go ahead but FA insiders have hinted that they will not take on La Albiceleste although the recent attack by Argentina Football Association president Julio Grondona's on the Fa is apparently not the reason.

"The two matches are still on. We already have the one in August 2013 for the 150th anniversary of the FA, at Wembley," said Guillermo Tofoni who looks after Argentina's scheduling.

"We need to find a window for the first one."

But the English FA are looking at the idea of going on a tour of the Brazil and perhaps playing in different 2014 World Cup venues.
