Brazil vs Honduras, Friendly, Live on beIN SPORT at 7pm ET: Open Thread

brazil 600x600 Brazil vs Honduras, Friendly, Live on beIN SPORT at 7pm ET: Open Thread

Brazil plays Honduras tonight in Miami in preparation for next summer’s World Cup. Both countries have brought strong squads with them to South Florida.

Event organizers will be hoping that the match will break the record for the largest attended soccer game ever to be played in Florida. The previous record was 70,080 for the Barcelona against Chivas de Guadalajara game that was played at Sun Life Stadium in Miami in 2011.

The match will be televised live for US viewers on beIN SPORT, with the broadcast beginning at 7pm ET. I’ll be there covering the game for World Soccer Talk, so if you have any specific questions you’d like me to ask any of the players or coaches, please post them in the comments section below.
