[DATEBOOK] The U.S. women's national team will close out its 2013 season with a match against Brazil Nov. 10 at the Florida Citrus Bowl in Orlando (TV: NBC, 3:30 p.m. ET).

U.S. women's schedule:
Oct. 20: Australia in San Antonio (1:30 ET on NBC)
Oct. 27: New Zealand in San Francisco (6:30 p.m. ET)
Oct. 30: New Zealand in Columbus, Ohio (7:30 p.m. ET)
Nov. 10: Brazil in Orlando, Fla. (3:30 ET on NBC)

The USA-Brazil meeting will be the first between the countries in the United States since 2008. Brazil faced Canada in Foxboro, Mass., in 2012.

The USA and Brazil have played three times since the USA won, 1-0, in San Diego in a match during which Abby Wambach broke her leg that kept her out of the 2008 Olympics.

The USA went on to beat Brazil in the 2008 Olympic gold medal game in Beijing, win their epic 2011 Women's World Cup quarterfinal in a shootout and beat Brazil in a 2012 international tournament in Chiba, Japan. The USA has an all-time record of 24-2-3 against Brazil.

"Over the last several years, there's been an intense rivalry between the two countries and a series of games that have been very tightly contested, highly competitive and of course extremely dramatic," said U.S. coach Tom Sermanni in a statement. "It will be a fantastic game to finish the year off."

The USA will go in its final four-game homestand of the year with a 10-0-2 record in 2013.
