USMNT vs. Brazil: Lineups and match thread

The United States came from behind to beat Peru on Friday, but that was against a middling team. Now comes a much tougher challenge against Brazil.

Of course, this isn't the Brazil of old. They've been struggling for years now and the recent friction between Neymar and Dunga has left the team's star on the bench. So how good are they really? That's anyone's guess.

Jurgen Klinsmann is going with an odd lineup. He's limited somewhat because John Brooks is out with a hamstring injury, but his fullbacks are still better central defenders than his centerbacks. And in the midfield, Jermaine Jones will be partnering Alejandro Bedoya in a lineup that doesn't seem to mesh too well, but we'll see how things go.

United States: Guzan; Cameron, Orozco, Alvarado, Ream; Jones, Bedoya; Yedlin, Bradley, Zardes; Altidore

Brazil: Grohe; Fabinho, Miranda, David Luiz, Marcelo; Luiz Gustavo, Elias; Willian, Lucas Lima, Douglas Costa; Hulk

The match kicks off at 8:40 p.m. ET and can be seen live on ESPN2, UniMas and Watch ESPN.
