The USA and Brazil have not met since they played two games at the Torneio Internacional da Brasilia last December. Brazil beat the USA, 3-2, in group play and then tied the USA, 0-0, to capture the four-team tournament by virtue of its perfect record in the round-robin stage.
Brazil and France are the only teams who have beaten the USA since Jill Ellis took over as coach in April 2014.
