PARIS (AP) — France will travel to South America in June to play friendly games against Uruguay and Brazil.

The French Football Federation said Friday that coach Didier Deschamps' team will face Uruguay in Montevideo's Stade Centenario on June 5, and then Brazil four days later in the Gremio Arena in Porto Alegre.

France has not played in Uruguay since the inaugural World Cup in 1930 and last played away in Brazil in 1977.
