On Monday 25 March, the Brasil Global Tour comes to Stamford Bridge, as the five-time World Cup winners take on Russia in a friendly, kick-off 7.30pm.

If selected, the Blues' Brazilian trio of David Luiz, Ramires and Oscar will represent their home nation at the home of their club, and the game represents a wonderful opportunity for supporters to come along and see what promises to be a top-quality game of international football.

The match also pits two of the most experienced managers in world football against each other. Chelsea supporters will have the chance to say hello to former boss Luiz Felipe Scolari - who took charge of Brazil back in November - while Russia are currently under the stewardship of former England manager Fabio Capello.

David Luiz, who captained Brazil for the first time back in September, is looking forward to representing his country in familiar surroundings.

'I am happy because I can play at home,' said the Chelsea defender.

'It will be a special moment for Brazil and Chelsea as well, and Ramires, Oscar and I need to fight for the opportunity to play this game because in Brazil everybody knows it is difficult to play in the national team, you have 200 million Brazilians who want to play in the national team.

'If we can play in this game it will be a special moment in our careers. There are a lot of Brazilians in London and they will want to see this game, so there will be a good atmosphere.

'Russia have a great team now and Brazil do as well and I invite the Chelsea fans to come to Stamford Bridge for this because I think it will be a great game.'
