    CHICAGO – The United States will host Brazil in a beach soccer friendly on August 14 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida, it was announced Wednesday.

    A unique transformation will turn the Seminole Paradise parking lot into a beach soccer stadium able to accommodate an audience of nearly 1,000 fans.  The event will be free to the general public.

    The U.S. is led by forward Nicolas Perera, who scored a team-best five goals at the 2013 FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup in Tahiti.  Brazil features top striker Bruno Xavier, the recipient of the Golden Ball at the same competition.

    The sides last met at the Riviera Maya Cup in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, with Brazil emerging victorious in the tournament opener for both.
