Cape Town - Brazil will use Tottenham Hotspur's training facilities to prepare for the 2018 Russia World Cup.

The Selecao face Croatia in a friendly match in England on June 3 ahead of taking on Austria in Vienna on June 10.

The five-time World Cup winners have an agreement in place with Spurs to use their world-class facilities ahead of those games.

A statement from the Brazilian Football Confederation read: "In addition to the friendlies, a partnership has been made official with Tottenham FC, who will make their facilities available for training as from May 28.

"The Selecao will have a gym, swimming pool and two official-size football pitches available to them, as well as a recently built hotel inside the training centre."

Brazil, who first take on Russia in Moscow on Friday and Germany in Berlin the following Tuesday, have been drawn alongside Switzerland, Costa Rica and Serbia in Group E in the tournament that kicks off on June 14 2018.

Tottenham added on their site: "The Brazil National Team will use our newly completed Lodge as their training base ahead of the World Cup in Russia this summer.

"The five-time world champions will arrive at Hotspur Way on May 28 and will base themselves at our elite facility until June 8 before departing for the World Cup.

"Situated on the site of Myddleton Farm, adjacent to our world-class Training Centre, The Lodge has been sensitively designed and built to deliver the highest quality private accommodation and treatment facilities for our players and teams whilst retaining the farm’s key features and heritage."
