Christian Pulisic’s first-half free kick goal put the U.S. men’s team level with Brazil en route to a 1-1 draw with the selection at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida, on Tuesday in the Yankees’ final preparation game for the Copa América.

This was a lot best of Gregg Berhalter’s men, who were poor in a 5-1 loss to Colombia on Saturday, getting a goal from Timothy Weah but making error after error behind to help The Coffee Growers The unbeaten streak reached 22.

The Yankees now have one tie other than the February 1998 Gold Cup victory over Brazil, just two meetings with the Yankees. selection not end in defeat.


Yes, USMNT goalkeeper Matt Turner was very good in the equalizer after making an early mistake to set up Rodrygo but the visitors were ahead, but the story here is the team’s leaps in performance and desire.

Dorival Junior selection They are expected to compete for the Copa América crown and are also the most likely opponent of the Yankees in the round of 16 of the Copa América 2024. The Yankees defended very well for 90 minutes in Florida.

USMNT vs Brazil Live Updates – By Nick Mendola

USMNT vs Brazil live score: 1-1

Scorers: Rodrygo (17′), Pulisic (26′)

Alisson hinders Aaronson; Pulisic misses by centimeters.

He is possibly the best goalkeeper in the world for a reason.

Brenden Aaronson will repeat this one as Alisson stops Aaronson’s legitimate chance to make it 2-1 to the hosts.

Pulisic then moves away from the traffic and fires a low shot past Alisson but also beyond the post.

Matt Turner saves. USMNT submarines

Rodrygo gets and keeps space from Chris Richards, shooting with the outside of his boot.

Turner reacts well to hit him with the palm of his left hand.

Tyler Adams comes in for Yunus Musah, while Brenden Aaronson takes Timothy Weah’s place.

What an opportunity for the Yankees!

Pulisic is wide open and 1v1 with Alisson, but this time the Liverpool goalkeeper is not beaten by the AC Milan man.

It really should be 2-1.

Endrick blinks!

New to the game, Endrick drives towards the goal and sends a knee-high shot to Turner before Tim Ream can block it.

Turner stops the ball and recovers it.

Substitutes! (minute 64)

Brazil eliminates Bruno Guimaraes, Raphinha and Lucas Paqueta, and places Endrick, Savio and Andreas Pereira.

Berhalter makes his first moves, placing Brazilian-bred Johnny Cardoso for Giovanni Reyna and Folarin Balogun for Ricardo Pepi.

Chris Richards is in trouble, isn’t he?

Chris Richards’ tackle on Rodrygo is initially a yellow card offence, but looks ominous when the VAR sends the referee to the pitchside monitor.

The review, however, sees Richards receive the ball. The yellow card is annulled and it is USMNT ball. You generally don’t see the free kick disallowed by review.

Moments later, Rodrygo almost unleashed a spectacular overhead kick into the frame.

Brazil makes a substitution at half-time

No changes for Gregg Berhalter at half-time, but Dorival Junior makes one for the selection.

These are Premier League changes, as Aston Villa’s Douglas Luiz (for now) takes the place of Wolves’ Joao Gomes.

Deservedly tied at halftime: USMNT 1-1 Brazil

The Yankees have touched the bar. Brazil saw a good opportunity that was denied by Matt Turner. Both teams have made mistakes in their own field and have paid for them.

It is a very fair 1-1, and somewhat forceful given the poor performance against Colombia.

There have been 14 total shots in this one, and the Yankees hit five of their six attempts on target.

Half stars? Pulisic, to be sure, while Timothy Weah and the left side of the Yankees defensive line, Antonee Robinson and Tim Ream, are faring better than the right.

Bruno Guimaraes, Rodrygo, Raphinha and Alisson, with four saves, are Brazil’s best players from the first 45 minutes.

The brilliant Pulisic wins the free kick and scores! USMNT 1-1 Brazil (minute 26)

Christian Pulisic dances through the Brazil defense and fell while trying to shoot from the edge of the 18th.

It is a free throw less than one meter from the 18-yard line and very close to the center.

He does it: fast, low and hard.

Openings, however

Weah is in high spirits and hits a piledriver that stung Alisson.

There are spaces in Brazil’s defense since the selection They don’t seem too worried about the Yankee threat.

Now Rodrygo surpasses Turner and the Nottingham Forest goalkeeper denies him.

Rodrygo goal! USMNT 0-1 Brazil (minute 17)

Not good!

Matt Turner goes mid-range with a goal kick and never reaches the waiting Weston McKennie.

Instead, there are two touches before Raphinha plays a pass through traffic to Rodrygo, who beats Turner with ease.

So far a good start.

Good shape as the Yankees are ready to fight

The USMNT surely feels the need to respond to the beating of Colombia and wait for this with discipline for the first 10 minutes or so.

The Yankees have taken three of the game’s five shots, including a Timothy Weah shot that was corralled by Liverpool star Alisson.

USMNT vs Brazil preview: Brazil focus, team news

Brazil have conceded goals a little more regularly than usual, a 3-2 loss in Mexico following a 3-3 draw in March with Spain.

But this is still a team that blanked England in March, and only used Vinicius Junior and Bruno Guimaraes for 15 minutes against Mexico, without using Rodrygo, Raphinha, Marquinhos and Gabriel Magalhaes.

Those players should feature prominently in Florida. Good luck, Gregg.
