The two teams met in the 2009 Confederations Cup Final in South Africa, where Brazil won in comeback fashion with two goals by Luis Fabiano and one by Lucio after being down 2-0 at the half thanks to early goals by Clint Dempsey and Landon Donovan.

The last time the two nations met was on May 30, 2012 in Landover, Maryland where the 5-time World Champions defeated the U.S. 4-1.

All-time, the United States is 1-16-0 against Brazil, their lone win came in the 1998 Gold Cup.
