PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The U.S. will play Brazil in an exhibition on Aug. 10 at the New Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., in the first match for the American soccer team after the World Cup.

Brazil, a five-time world champion, has won 14 of 15 meetings between the teams. The lone American win was 1-0 in Los Angeles in February 1998 at the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

The U.S. Soccer Federation announced the match Friday. The game is on a FIFA fixture date, meaning clubs are required to release players to national teams.

Alice McGillion, a spokeswoman for the New Meadowlands Stadium, said a temporary grass field will be installed over the artificial turf for the game.

The first professional sporting event at the $1.6 billion stadium was a soccer game on May 7, when Mexico and Ecuador played a 0-0 tie. The NFL's Giants and Jets move in for the upcoming season.
