Brazil vs Panama: Live Stream, TV Channel, Start Time for 2014 FIFA Friendly

Brazil will face Panama in a FIFA international football friendly on Tuesday, June 3.

The game at Estádio do Governo do Estado de Goiás in Goias, Brazil is slated to start at 3 p.m. EDT.

The match will be broadcast on SporTV and Globo in Brazil.

A channel isn’t listed for Panama.

It will also be broadcast on SuperSport in much of Africa and beIN Sports in other parts of Africa, the Middle East, and Asia, as well as the United States. BT Sport 1 will broadcast the match in the United Kingdom.

Live streaming will be available through most of the broadcasters listed above. 

Panama is a fairly strong team despite not making it into the World Cup. The team nearly beat the United States on October 15, 2013–but lost 2-3, knocking them out of World Cup competition. They had lost 1-2 to Mexico before that, and had draws with Honduras and Jamaica.

Brazil, meanwhile, has won its last seven, and nine of its last 10.

It trounced South Africa on March 5 in its last friendly. It also beat Chile and Honduras in November 2013.

The last time Brazil and Panama played appears to be in 2001, when Brazil won 5-0.

Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari will be keeping his main players well-rested and looking to give the rest of the squad time on the field.

Dante is ante and Hernanes are stepping in the starting lineup due to injuries to Paulinho and Thiago Silva, reported Goal.com.

“Replacing the best in the world is never an easy task, but I have my own qualities, as well,” said Dante, who appears comfortable in his role as reserve central defender. “My goal is not to compete with Thiago Silva and Luiz, but to help them prepare in training and to be ready to play if I am needed.”

Scolari says that he believes he will have the full roster at his disposal for the next match on Friday against Serbia, the last before the World Cup starts.
