Scotland midfielder Charlie Adam hopes that he and his international team-mates can compete with Brazil on Sunday.
The Emirates Stadium friendly will be the first time the two nations have met since the group stages of the 1998 World Cup, when Brazil were defending champions.
Tom Boyd's own goal condemned Scotland to a 2-1 defeat in Paris in what was the only game against the Brazilians that 25-year-old Adam is old enough to remember watching.
But the Blackpool playmaker is now aiming to go toe-to-toe with Brazil's famous Samba stars and he is desperate for Craig Levein's Scotland to do themselves proud.
"I just hope the current squad we've got now is good enough to put up a good show and get a good performance," said Adam.
"It'll be a fantastic occasion and hopefully I'll get the opportunity to play.
"Brazil are one of the best teams in the world and they've got some of the best players.
"It's great that I've been picked for the squad and hopefully we'll get the right result."
Asked which of Brazil's array of world-famous players he admires the most, Adam said: "They've got so many - Ronaldinho, Kaka, (Danny) Alves.
"They've got fantastic players and it doesn't matter who they bring on the pitch they're going to be world class.
"Any time you can step on the pitch with players like these it's going to be a very proud moment.
"The most important thing is the result and hopefully we can get the right result."
