Prepare for more international soccer as the US men's national team is slated to play Brazil on Tuesday, Sept. 8, according to The Boston Globe.

The game will be the Yanks' second in Foxborough in a two-month span as they play Haiti on Friday, Jul 10 as part of a Gold Cup double header. The early match also features members of Group A as Honduras will face off against Panama.

The USA-Brazil game will certainly draw well as the region has a large Brazilian population. In 2013, Brazil defeated Portugal 3-1 in front of 62,310 fans, a number close to capacity. The electric atmosphere is something that should be replicated for this upcoming friendly.

Beyond seeing beautiful, high-quality soccer, New England Revolution fans should be excited about the possibility of seeing some of their own on the field. Juan Agudelo, Lee Nguyen, and Jermaine Jones, who should be fully recovered by then, could all potentially be on the roster.
