Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Sweden take on Brazil, who have added some senior players to their Olympic team for this friendly.

Brazil have spent the entire summer playing friendlies to warm up for the Olympics, and they've just come off a silver medal performance in London. All of the Brazilian players have been away from their club teams for just over two months at this point, so what's another four days going to hurt? It's a FIFA date, so Mano Menezes isn't going to waste it. Brazil takes on Sweden this Wednesday, and his team has been boosted by some senior players.

Daniel Alves, David Luiz, Dede, Ramires, Paulinho and Jonas have reinforced the Olympic team and could all potentially see some minutes. Sweden had a change in management after their disappointing performance at Euro 2012, and they've made plenty of changes to their squad since the tournament. Fulham's Alexander Kacaniklic has been named to the team, and could make his debut. Of course, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is still the headliner.

Game Date/Time: Wednesday, 2:00 p.m. ET, 8:00 p.m. local

Venue: Rasunda Stadium, Stockholm, Sweden

TV: GolTV (U.S. and Canada)

We'll have live updates of this and other friendlies on Wednesday in our international friendlies StoryStream.
