[SEEN AROUND TOWN: USA in Sao Paulo]The USA completed its first week in Sao Paulo, where it is training at the World Cup facilities it will use during the finals. The Americans attracted a posse of reporters curious to find out about the giants of Concacaf. The week featured the first of two friendly games and the first birthday of the month.

FELIZ ANIVERSARIO.A local TV station delivered a birthday cake for Benny Feilhaber, the lone Brazilian-born member of the U.S. national team. Feilhaber, who turned 29 on Sunday, is one of four players who celebrate birthdays during the January camp along with Chris Harrington (28 on Friday) and Seth Sinovic and Chris Wondolowski (27 and 31, respectively, on Jan. 28).
