Whal is reporting that Camp Cupcake 2014 will go ahead, and that time will be split between LA and Sao Paulo, Brasil where the USMNT will be based during the WC. As of right now there are no friendlies lined up for when they go to Sao Paulo.

Brasil would have a Camp Cupcake team as well. It would be interesting.

Brazil cupcake team may very well be as good as England (which is to say decent, but never great. zing).

I would hope if they were going down to brazil that a friendly would be scheduled. I would think a brazil squad made up of local brazil players would be a very good challenge for camp cupcake players.

Brazil could win the world cup with nothing but league based players...

lol no way in hell that would happen maybe in the old days when all the top talent was in brazil but not now with most of the elite talent still being situated in europe. While talent has returned its often in the form of older players past their prime. Brazilan league is good but the number one problem would be the lack of talented defenders in the brazilan leaguers. If you watch the copa liberatores its unbelievable how much space brazilan defenders give to attackers. Plus the top brazilan right now is in europe. The lack of speed of brazilan cbs plus inability to man mark would be so costly.

They could perhaps have friendlys/scrimmages against the local club teams. Sao Paulo is struggling but historically good. Maybe Santos.
