Derby County to host Brazil-Ukraine friendly

Robinho struggled to settle in his time with Manchester City

Brazil stars Pato, Robinho and Ramires will be among the star names showing off their talents at Pride Park for an international friendly next month.

Derby County's ground will play host to the game between Brazil and Ukraine on Monday, 11 October.

Rams executive chairman Tom Glick said: "This is a fantastic opportunity.

"We are immensely proud. It is a real opportunity to showcase the city of Derby and what a fantastic venue Pride Park Stadium is to the whole world."

Former Manchester City star Robinho will be just one of several players familiar to followers of the Premier League.

Chelsea duo Ramires and Alex, along with Tottenham's Sandro and Liverpool's Lucas, have also been named in the Brazil squad.

Both teams would most likely train at the club's Moor Farm facilities in the build-up to the game.

Pride Park last hosted a senior international fixture when England played Mexico in 2001, prior to the completion of Wembley.
