The kick-off time of a World Cup football qualifying match between Brazil and Uruguay, scheduled to be held on March 25, has been changed.

The match was initially scheduled to start at 4 p.m., Brazilian time.

However, the AUF (Uruguayan Football Association), said on Wednesday that their counterparts at the Brazilian Football Confederation had changed the time of the game.

World football's governing body FIFA has agreed to the change, and the contest will now kick off at 9.45pm Brazilian time, at the Arena Pernambuco in Recife.

After facing Uruguay, Brazil will take on Paraguay on 29 March in Assuncao.
