The USA opened its run of five international games with a comprehensive 5-1 win against Scotland on Saturday. Landon Donovan hit a hat-trick in his first national team match since September 2011.
The legendary attacker will likely start in a 4-3-3 formation against the Selecao, alongside Altidore and Torres.
For the South Americans, Neymar is likely to return after missing the 3-1 weekend win over Denmark, and could start in attack alongside Hulk, who grabbed a double against the Danes.
