Mark Schwarzer says that all the focus will be on Brazil when they face Australia in a friendly on Saturday.

Australia goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer has heaped pressure on Brazil ahead of their friendly in Brasilia on Saturday.

The Chelsea stopper, who is likely to start for the Socceroos, goes up against Blues teammates David Luiz, Ramires and Oscar for the clash at Estadio Nacional Mane Garrincha this weekend.

However, Schwarzer feels that all the expectation will be on the shoulders of the 2014 World Cup hosts ahead of their home tournament.

"They're a very young side, a side that have got world stars all over the field," Schwarzer told reporters.

"They're off the back of winning the Confeds Cup and deservedly winning it, beating Spain convincingly in the final.

"There's a lot of expectation on their shoulders. They're hosting the World Cup next year as we all know. And the expectation in this country for the national team is always enormous. It's going to be even greater now as the host nation."

Brazil beat Spain in the final of the 2013 Confederations Cup earlier this summer.
