Brazil to face El Salvador in Washington D.C. in September

The FC crew take a gander at the short list released for FIFA's Best Men's Player award and debate whether Neymar should've been among the nominees.

Brazil will face El Salvador in a friendly in September in addition to their game against the United States.

The El Salvador game will be played on Sept. 11 at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland, outside Washington D.C., which has a large Salvadoran population.

Brazil won their only two previous meetings against El Salvador -- a 1994 friendly and a 1998 CONCACAF Gold Cup match -- by 4-0 scorelines.

U.S. deals with nipple twisting and biting in Gold Cup win over El Salvador

PHILADELPHIA -- Just call it "50 Shades of Soccer." Wednesday's Gold Cup quarterfinal between the U.S. and El Salvador had just about everything. There was biting, nipple twisting and, oh, a couple of U.S. goals in a 2-0 win for the home side.

Yep, just another night in CONCACAF.

Jozy Altidore was the recipient of most of the unwanted advances, including a bite from El Salvador defender Henry Romero in the 59th minute. Romero later twisted Altidore's nipple, and both actions had the effect of incapacitating...
