FIVE-TIME world champions Brazil make a triumphant return to Soweto to begin their final World Cup preparations with a training session watched by 10000 Sowetans today.

Fresh from a 3-0 victory over Zimbabwe in Harare yesterday, Brazil will train at the upgraded Dobsonville Stadium from 3.30pm. The LOC said last night that the training will be open to 10000 spectators on a first come, first served basis, free of charge.

On display will be players such as Kaká and Robinho. Entry is via tickets only, to be issued by the City of Johannesburg.

City officials will distribute the tickets through ward committees, local schools and the Dobsonville police station.

Only the above channels are legal and approved.

The Brazilians will also play Tanzania in Dar es Salaam next Monday. - Added reporting by Reuters
