The match will be played at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, MA, as Neymar and Co. will roll into town. The Selecao were meant to be playing a friendly against Argentina on U.S. soil a few days earlier but that has been called off due to the ongoing FIFA corruption scandal which has close connections to both CONMEBOL and CONCACAF. The last time the U.S. played Brazil was in a friendly match back in 2012 when they lost 4-1 at FedEx Field in Maryland.

As for the U.S., they already have another September friendly penciled in as they will play Peru at RFK Stadium on Sept. 4.
