With October matches against Australia and New Zealand coming up , the US Soccer has announced they will wrap up their 2013 season with a match against 4th-ranked Brazil on November 10 in Orlando at the Florida Citrus Bowl.

The game will kick at 3:30pm ET and will be broadcast live on NBC.

Ranked #1 in the world, the United States haven’t lost in 2013. The last team to beat them was Japan back in March of 2012.

The US have a dominating 24-2-3 record against Brazil, but the two sides have played some nail-biters in recent memory.

The last time the countries squared off on U.S. soil was in July 2008, when the United States won 1-0 in a warmup match for the Beijing Olympics (a match in which Abby Wambach broke her leg).

The Americans then beat Brazil in the finals of that competition, for the second of their three-straight Olympic titles.

In the 2011 Women’s World Cup in Germany, they played in the quarterfinals in an epic matchup which the United States again came out on top in penalty kicks after Wambach’s headed goal in added time secured a 2-2 draw.

The most recent time they played was April of last year in the Kirin Challenge Cup from Chiba, Japan where the U.S. cruised to a 3-0 victory.
