    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.

    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.
