  DID YOU KNOW?
  • The USA opened its five-game stretch with a 5-1 win against Scotland on Saturday. Landon Donovan had a hat trick in his first national team match since September 2011.
  • The same day, Brazil started its four-match tour leading to the Olympics with a 3-1 win over Denmark. Hulk scored two goals.
  • USA midfielder Clint Dempsey missed the Scotland match with a groin injury. He's hopeful of returning for the Brazil game, but may have to settle for a spot on the bench.

  • There have been over 55,000 tickets sold for the match, which is expected to set an all-time attendance record for a friendly in the Washington, D.C. area.

  • The USA is 1-15-0 all-time against Brazil, with the win coming in 1998. The last meeting between the two was a 2-0 Brazil victory in a friendly in August 2010.
