Fresh off their World Cup victory this summer, the U.S. Women’s National Team will take on Brazil in their Victory Tour tomorrow, Oct. 25 at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando.

This is the sixth match of the Victory Tour for the National Team, who defeated Japan 5-2 back in July to capture the United States’ third World Cup title.

“It’s been incredible,” said goalkeeper Hope Solo. “What we did was historical, we won the World Cup. We did it in a fantastic way, a very entertaining way where we really got the country behind us.”

The National Team played to a 1-1 draw in their last match Oct. 21, also against Brazil.

Not only does this Victory Tour give the fans a chance to see and celebrate the champs, but it gives the team and head coach Jill Ellis a chance to test some of the younger players on the roster.

“These are the kinds of games where we get tested and it provides a chance to evaluate our player pool. The more matches we can play like this, the better.”

The last time the National Team played in Orlando was also against Brazil, in November 2013, a 4-1 victory in front of more than 20,000 fans.

“I’m really excited to play here,” said forward Alex Morgan. “[Orlando] has become a major soccer city this year and I’m looking forward to seeing that continue in the coming years.”

A deal has been rumored and is tentatively in place for Morgan to be traded from the Portland Thorns to the new upstart Orlando Pride of the NWSL. Morgan is married to Orlando City midfielder Servando Carrasco.

Midfielder Lauren Holiday and defender Lori Chalupny will also be making their final international appearances for the National Team on Sunday.

Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m. EST from the Citrus Bowl, with the game being broadcast on FOX Sports 1.
