Coach John Hackworth's U.S. team faces Brazil on Sunday (streamed live on U.S. Soccer’s Facebook page, YouTube channel and ussoccer.com) in its final game of the Nike Friendlies. Brazil is undefeated with wins over England (2-1) and the Netherlands (2-1).
The Netherlands took the lead in the third minute on an indirect free kick awarded when U.S. Kepper Kashope Oladapo handled a back pass. By halftime of the 80-minute game, the Dutch were up, 3-0, and they added two more goals before Alfonso Ocampo Chavez scored the USA's consolation goal six minutes before the final whistle.
