Brazil to play El Salvador in friendly

RIO DE JANEIRO

Aug 5, 2018-

Brazil will meet El Salvador in a friendly next month in a suburb of Washington. The game will be held at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland, on September 11, four days after coach Tite’s team takes on the US in a previously announced friendly at East Rutherford, New Jersey. The two matches will be Brazil’s first since their World Cup quarter-final elimination against Belgium in July. They will also be the first games since Tite extended his contract until the end of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Tite will announce his squad next Friday. The matches are part of Brazil’s preparation for Copa America, which they will host in June 2019. (AP)
