Women’s World Cup so far as they’re set to square off against one of the most dominant countries in the world, Brazil (in terms of soccer mind you).

The U.S. should be plenty hungry after falling in their final match of Group C play to Sweden 2-1. The loss ended the United States unbeaten record in group play after 18 total matches, and gave Sweden their second win over the U.S. in 2011.

The Brazilians exited winners of Group D with 9 points. They started off the tournament slow beating Australia just 1-0, but showed what they’re capable of in the next two games defeating both Norway and Equatorial Guinea 3-0.

U.S. midfielder Shannon Boxx knows the team has to capitalize on their chances in order to defeat Brazil, “We’ve created a lot of opportunities, but we haven’t finished them. I think that’s a huge focus for us – just making sure that we finish our chances. We’re not going to get that many against Brazil so we need to make them count.”

Kickoff between the United States and Brazil is set for 11 a.m. ET and the match can be seen live on ESPN, ESPN3.com and Galavision.
