Tuesday night's friendly clash saw Jurgen Klinsmann's men thrashed 4-1 by the visitors in Foxborough, Massachusetts.

The US national team were outclassed in their final tune-up game before next month’s Confederations Cup play-off against Mexico, as they suffered a 4-1 friendly defeat to Brazil at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts.

Brazil took the lead just nine minutes into the game when Willian took advantage of some poor US defending to set up Hulk for a simple finish, as the visitors proceeded to dominate the first-half.

They would have to wait until five minutes after the break for the second, however, when substitute Neymar won and converted a spot-kick after drawing a foul from Stoke City’s Geoff Cameron.

Fellow Barcelona forward Rafinha then added a third just after the hour following a swift counter-attack, before he teed up his club teammate three minutes later for the Selecao skipper to grab his second of the game.

The US finally got on the scoreboard in stoppage-time when Danny Williams sent a thunderous long-range strike past goalkeeper Marcelo Grohe but that was small consolation for being taught a harsh lesson on the night.

The performance of Aston Villa goalkeeper Brad Guzan was the lone bright spot for the hosts, as the likes of Sunderland’s Tottenham Hotspur loanee DeAndre Yedlin proved unable to cope with the passing and movement of the five-time World Cup champions.

Here are some of the images from a match which put further pressure on US head coach Jurgen Klinsmann ahead of the crucial one-off showdown with their arch rivals on 10 October.
