The day after defending World Cup champion Germany was upset by Japan, the U.S. women's national team and Brazil will face off in a match that should go a long way toward determining who the next world champion will be.
The United States will look to rebound from an upset loss to Sweden in the group stage, but must find a way to stop a Brazil attack that has gotten the better of the Americans in the past.
On the MLS front, the Portland Timbers play host to the Seattle Sounders in the first MLS installment of their fierce rivalry to be played at Jeld-Wen Field. The Timbers took a point from the meeting at Qwest Field earlier in the season, but has hit a six-match winless streak while Seattle is on a seven-match unbeaten streak.
The best match of the day might actually be taking place in Mexico City, where host Mexico is facing Uruguay in the Under-17 World Cup inal at Estadio Azteca.
