We've got Brazil on our minds!

The CP seems a source reputable enough to confirm my earlier rumour mongering:

Brazil to play soccer friendlies against Canada, Venezuela in US
17 hours ago

SAO PAULO, Brazil — Brazil will play friendlies against Canada and Venezuela in the United States in May and June.

The five-time world champions will face Canada in Seattle on May 31, and Venezuela in Boston on June 6, the Brazilian soccer confederation said Monday.

They will be Brazil's third and fourth friendlies this year. It beat Ireland 1-0 in Dublin on Feb. 6, and defeated Sweden by the same score in London on March 26.

The matches will take place before Brazil's World Cup qualifiers against Paraguay on June 14 and
archrival Argentina on June 17.

Seattle's a bit far. Why can't they do these things somewhere closer like Minneapolis, or Grand Forks?
