  1. The United States are given a second chance by the nature to defeat Brazil which seems to be lucky and fragile. So to speak, the task will not easy for either team. The United States should not let pass such a golden opportunity to beat the 5-times champion of the world in order to go higher in the Fifa ranking.I am a brazilian fan but entirely dis satisfied with its performance.
