SAO PAULO (AP) — Brazil will head to the United States for its first games on FIFA dates after the World Cup.

Organizers said Friday that the Selecao will play an exhibition against Colombia on Sept. 5 at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. Four days later, they’ll face Ecuador at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

FIFA eliminated the August date for exhibition games. The international calendar sets aside periods for national team games during the second half of this year from Sept. 1-9, Oct. 6-14 and Nov. 10-18.
