    MIAMI GARDENS, Florida -- A friendly between Honduras and 2014 World Cup host Brazil on November 16 at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, was confirmed Wednesday after the Central American side played to a 2-2 World Cup Qualifying draw at Jamaica a day earlier. 

    It will mark the first time Brazil has made an appearance in the Miami area since it defeated the United States, 2-1, in the 2003 CONCACAF Gold Cup semifinals at the Orange Bowl.

    The five-time World Cup champions hosted and won this year’s FIFA Confederations Cup with a 3-0 win over Spain in the final.  They are riding a four-game winning streak, defeating Zambia 2-0 on Tuesday in Beijing, China.

    Honduras, which defeated El Salvador 1-0 in a Gold Cup encounter at Sun Life Stadium in July, has met Brazil on five previous occasions.  The Catrachos’ only win in the all-time series came at the 2001 Copa America quarterfinals in Colombia.  Saul Martinez forced a 57th minute Brazilian own-goal and also netted one himself four minutes into second-half stoppage time in an historic 2-0 triumph.
