USWNT to play Brazil in Seattle, Orlando in October

The United States women’s national team will play Brazil twice in October — in Seattle and Orlando — as part of the team’s 10-game 2015 Women’s World Cup victory tour.

CenturyLink Field in Seattle will play host to the two teams on Oct. 21 and the Citrus Bowl in Orlando will host them again on Oct. 25. Seattle Reign FC announced the first match on Sunday. Brazil’s official federation website has both fixtures listed; U.S. Soccer is yet to formally announce either.

The United States’ victory tour kicks off on August 16 against Costa Rica in Pittsburgh, Pa.; the two teams play again on August 19 in Chattanooga, Tenn. Australia will visit the U.S. for a pair of games in the United States in September — one in Detroit and one in Birmingham, Ala. The final four matches of the tour are tentatively scheduled for December.

Brazil is ranked No. 6 in the world, behind world No. 1 USA, who won the 2015 Women’s World Cup by trouncing Japan, 5-2 in the final last month.

Despite Brazil’s status as one of the world’s best teams, Seleção Feminina is only 3-25-4 all-time against the United States. One of those victories came in December 2014 in Brazil. The Americans have never lost to Brazil in the United States. The two teams last played in the U.S. in November 2013, also at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando.
