USA vs. Brazil
U.S. Women’s National Team Victory Tour
Orlando Citrus Bowl; Orlando, Fla.
Oct. 25, 2015
World Champions Come to Orlando to Face Long-Time Rival Brazil in Sixth Victory Tour Match.
Following its historic run to the championship of the 2015 Women’s World Cup in Canada, the U.S. Women’s National Team has embarked on a 10-game Victory Tour across the country that will serve the dual purpose of celebrating the USA’s third Women’s World Cup title with the fans, while also preparing the team for the 2016 CONCACAF Olympic qualifying tournament that will take place in early February of next year.
The Victory Tour hit its mid-point on Oct. 21 when the USA faced Brazil at CenturyLink Field in Seattle. The Americans gave up a third-minute goal to Monica off a corner kick, but as she has all year (and for many years), Carli Lloyd scored a clutch goal in the 85th minute to earn a 1-1 draw. The teams traveled to Florida on Oct. 22 for the second match of the two-game set on Oct. 25 at the Orlando Citrus Bowl (2:30 ET on FOX Sports 1, FOX Sports GO). Fans can follow all the action from #USAvBRA on Twitter @ussoccer_wnt and @ussoccer_esp, and follow the team along its journey on Instagram and Snapchat (ussoccer_wnt).
After the Brazil matches, the USA has four games remaining on the Victory Tour – all in December. The USA will play Trinidad & Tobago on Dec. 6 in Honolulu and Dec. 10 in San Antonio, and then will finish the tour on Dec. 13 at the University of Phoenix Stadium against China PR before playing the 10th and final game of the Victory Tour against China on Dec. 16 in New Orleans. The U.S. team has lost just one match this year, that being its first game of 2015 against France in Lorient, a 2-0 defeat in early February that the USA flipped one month later when the teams met in the championship game of the 2015 Algarve Cup in Portugal. The USA is 17-1-4 this year, including a record of 7-0-2 on home soil.
