1.The team A and the team B will play a football match.

2. A football match will be played by the team A and team B.

3. A football match will be played between the team A and team B.

Would you approve all the three sentences?

    Second sentence looks incorrect to me.

    I would say: The A Team and the B team.

    The French team and the Brazilian team will play a football game.

    A football game will be played between the Brazilian team and the French team.


    You can omit the word team.


    Brazil and France will play a football game.
    A football game will be played between Brazil and France.




    I'm not sure if match is appropiate here, you can have a tennis match, but you end up playing an entire game.

    Hope this helps! ;)

    Like Volky, I see the article as the biggest difficulty with your sentences.

    Your use of the passive voice is appropriate.

    I'm not sure if there is a difference in the use of "by" and "between" in this context, but they both sound fine to me.

    Even though I'm American, I still hear "football match" enough to be comfortable with it to describe the entire football contest; although, like Volky, I'm more familiar with "football game".

    Cheers.
