[DATEBOOK] The Brazilian soccer federation (CBF) announced plans for the 2014 World Cup hosts to play the USA at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass., on May 30 or 31 and Mexico June 3 at the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, in addition to the previously announced game against Argentina June 9 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

The USA-Brazil will serve as a tuneup for the Americans, who will open World Cup 2014 qualifying at home against Antigua & Barbuda on June 8 and at Guatemala four days later.

Brazil beat the USA, 2-0, in their last meeting in East Rutherford in August 2010. It was Brazil's 15th win in 16 games in the series.

The only U.S. win came when it beat Brazil, 1-0, at the 1998 Gold Cup.
