Brazil to play against US in football friendly

Rio de Janeiro:Brazil will meet the United States in a friendly at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, on September 8, the South American country's CBF football confederation has said.

The clash will be Brazil's first outing since their Copa America quarterfinal loss to Paraguay on penalties last month, reports Xinhua.

Brazil coach Dunga will announce his squad for the fixture at a press conference in Rio de Janeiro on August 13, the CBF said in a statement on Thursday.

The friendly will be one of the last chances for Dunga to fine-tune his team ahead of South America's 25-month World Cup qualifying campaign starting in October.

World football's governing body FIFA will announce the qualifying draw at a ceremony in Saint Petersburg, Russia, on Saturday.
