Brazil-U.S. Exhibition At Landover, Md., On May 30
CHICAGO (AP) — The United States’ exhibition soccer game against Brazil will be played May 30 at Landover, Md.
The game was announced Jan. 12 as part of Brazil’s three-game U.S. trip, with the site and date set Thursday by the U.S. Soccer Federation.
Brazil, a five-time U.S. champion, will be playing the Americans for the fourth time in four years. Brazil has won all three in that span — twice at the 2009 Confederations Cup in South Africa and a 2-0 exhibition win at East Rutherford, N.J., in August 2010.
Before World Cup qualifying begins, the Americans play at Italy on Feb. 29, then plan to host Scotland on May 26. They play at Canada on June 3 before opening qualifying at home against Antigua and Barbuda on June 8.
