The Matildas have secured a warm-up friendly international against Brazil 11 days before opening their Rio Olympics football campaign.

Coach Alen Stajcic's world No.5 medal prospects will face the eighth-ranked host nation on July 23 in Fortaleza, where the Matildas will be based for a month leading into the August Games.

Australia hope to lock in further friendlies to help them prepare for their Olympics campaign starting against Canada on August 3.
