An upcoming football fixture between former world champion Brazil and minnows Austria sold out all 48,500 tickets within 28 hours of going on sale.


As part of the Gillette Brasil Global Tour, Austria will face the formidable South American team a week after they play Turkey in a match in Istanbul scheduled for November 11th.

The match will be held at the Ernst Happel stadium in Vienna on November 18th.

Former midfielder Carlos Caetano Bledorn Verri -- known popularly as Dunga -- is Brazil's new coach, succeeding Luiz Felipe Scolari after the recent world cup, in which Brazil finished in fourth place, losing to the Netherlands.

The team ended the tournament with the worst defensive record among the 32 competing nations, having conceded 14 goals.

Since the 50-year-old Dunga took over coaching the team, Brazil has maintained a perfect record of four straight victories, including defeats of Colombia, Ecuador, Argentina and Japan.
