[INTERNATIONAL FRIENDLY] Brazil beat the USA, 4-1, before a crowd of more than 67,000 fans at FedEx Field in Landover, Md. The Americans created plenty of
chances, outshooting Brazil 15-11, but could only manage a lucky goal by Herculez Gomez shortly before halftime. They
paid a heavy price for some very shaky defending by central defenders Oguchi Onyewu and Carlos Bocanegra.
