"Nós não sabemos quem jogará contra o Brasil."

Translation:We do not know who will play against Brazil.

When you are talking about a national sports team do you include a definite article tag as in this sentence or is it only newspaper headlines where they can get away without them?

Anyway, tomorrow after the Confederations Cup Final the headline could say: "Brasil vence Espanha"!


Haha... good for Brazil. In headlines the definite article is usually missed out. After preposition you have to add that in any case... when the country requires an article
