The second leg of the showcase friendly series between Argentina and Brazil was postponed due to floodlight failure on Wednesday.

Brazil defeated Argentina 2-1 in the first meeting between the teams in Goiania last month, with the return fixture intended to take place in Resistencia.

But a lights failure at Estadio Centenario, home of fourth-tier Club Atletico Sarmiento, forced the match to be called off 70 minutes after the scheduled kick-off time.

Lisandro Lopez and Maxi Rodriguez had been set to take part for Argentina, while stars such as Leandro Damiao and Neymar were due to play for Brazil.

The two-match series, dubbed the Americas’ Superclassic Cup, forms part of Brazil’s preparations for the FIFA 2014 World Cup, which Mano Menezes’ team qualified for automatically as hosts.
