Non-League outfit Corinthian-Casuals to meet Brazilian giants Corinthians

Non-League outfit Corinthian-Casuals are set to face Brazilian sister club Corinthians in Sao Paulo in January.

The Daily Mail reports in January, the non-League club will take on Brazilian outfit Corinthians at a stadium built for the 2014 World Cup that holds almost 48,000 fans.

The friendly at the Corinthians Arena in Sao Paulo will mark 100 years since a scheduled match between the two teams was abandoned due to the outbreak of the First World War.

Both clubs have a history that dates back to 1910, when the English amateur side toured Brazil and locals were inspired to create their own Corinthians team as a result.

Casuals sit 11th in the Ryman Isthmian League South, the eighth tier of England's footballing pyramid, and will travel for the fixture against the team currently fifth in Brasileirao on January 25.
