Jurgen Klinsmann's men have a good record against top 10 teams this year, having already beaten the Netherlands and Germany.

Dunga's Brazil team, which is ranked sixth in the world, was knocked out in the quarterfinals of the Copa America in June.

The record between the nations is one-sided, with Brazil having won 16 of the 17 encounters.

USA and Brazil last met in 2012, when the five-time world champions claimed a 4-1 win.

UPDATE: Brazil announced Aug. 4 that it will play Costa Rica in a friendly on Sept. 5, three days before the U.S. match, at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, N.J. The match against Costa Rica replaces a match against Argentina in San Francisco that was canceled.
