USA TO PLAY BRAZIL IN AUGUST

BRIAN SCIARETTA - Saturday, May 29, 2010
The USSF confirmed the US national team will play Brazil at the new Meadowlands Stadium in New Jersey on August 10 at 8pm EST. It will be the first game for the US of the 2014 cycle.

The US has played Brazil three times during the present cycle. While Brazil won all three games, two of them were very competitive. The Confederations Cup final was the most recent game and in that game the US scored two goals in the first half but Brazil scored three in the second half to come out as eventual victors.

It will also be the first US game at the brand new Medowlands Stadium which is a strong candidate to be part of either the 2018 or 2022 World Cup should the USSF's bid be successful.

This will be a great match!

Lets say Brasil wins the world cup we will be the first to play the new champs and if we some how win that would be a great day.

I totally agree with you Thomas. It amazes me at times that we would have a US qualifying match against Mexico in Phoenix or LA or any southwest venue in general. The games need to be in Seattle and Chicago places like that for example.

Miguel, I didn't say there wouldn't be any Brazilians there I just said that there would be more Mexican-Americans rooting for another Latin team than American fans rooting for the US unfortunately. If the game was played in Seattle it would be completely different...this is undebatable as many games in the northeast vs. northwest have proven this fact. Good football does deserve support but you can't tell me that if Brazil played in Rio and didn't have support they wouldn't look elsewhere to play their "home" games...

Actually The stadium I'm pretty sure will be filled with 80 or 90 thousand Brasilians not mexicans, they've played twice in New England filling Gillette Stadium and a large percentage of those Brasilian fans came on buses from CT,NY and NJ...I live in Boston but I will be going down to watch Brasil, the attmoshpere at Brasil game cant be matched, I'm not even Brasilian but i'll be in yellow just like i was for the 2 games in New England...Good football deserves support regardless of nationality

Why does the USSF not want to play in Seattle in front of 60,000+ raging lunatics in which 90% of them will be rooting for the US? There will be more Mexican-Americans at the game rooting for Brazil than American spectators unfortunately.
