The U.S. men's national team's rumored friendly against Brazil has been confirmed, and FedExField will be the site for its location.

In preparation for World Cup qualifying, the United States will host Brazil on May 30 at the home of the Washington Redskins in Landover, Md. The game, which is scheduled for an 8pm kickoff time, will mark the first time the U.S. team will play at FedExField. It will be televised on ESPN2, ESPN3 and Univision.

The stadium may be new to the U.S. team but it is no stranger to international soccer, having hosted two highly-attended matches in the past. FedExField was home to a Manchester United-Barcelona friendly last year and also held a Real Madrid exhibition with D.C. United in 2009.

The match against Brazil is the second confirmed friendly in a week for the United States, with a game against Canada at BMO Field in Toronto on June 3 having been made official. Another friendly with Scotland is rumored.

What do you think of FedExField being chosen as the location for the USA-Brazil friendly? Expecting a large turnout? Plan on attending?
