ZURICH, October 14. /TASS, Oleg Koshelev/. Brazil is ready to send its best players of the national football team, including top players such as Neymar, for a friendly match against the Russian national squad, Fernando Sarney, a deputy president of the Brazilian Football Confederation, told TASS on Friday.

Russian Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko announced on Wednesday that the legendary Luzhniki stadium in the Russian capital of Moscow would host a football match of the national team against one of the top South American teams after reconstruction works at the historic facility are completed.

Mutko, who is also the president of the Russian Football Union (RFU), said the possible match at the reconstructed football arena in the Russian capital would be either held against Brazil or Argentina.

"Mutko talked to me," Sarney said in an interview with TASS. "We are starting to do the official stuff and he (Mutko) is sending a demand to Brazil to go (to Russia)."

"I have to talk to my coach, to my people in Brazil," the Brazilian football official said. "I don't think there is any problem. We are interested in it."

"It is very good for us," Sarney said. "It would be good to play at the World Cup final stadium."

Asked by a TASS correspondent whether Brazil would bring it strongest lineup of footballers for the match against Russia, including top-scorer Neymar, Sarney said: "For sure."
