Brazil and Mexico face off in a tune-up match for the Olympics and CONCACAF World Cup qualifying in front of a packed Cowboys Stadium.

Mexico started their summer with two games against teams that should prepare them for CONCACAF-level opposition, defeating Wales and Bosnia-Herzegovina. On Sunday, they close out their friendly schedule with a massive cash cow of a game and a step up in competition. Lots of people get to make lots of money when El Tri takes on Brazil in front of a packed house, over 90,000 strong, at Cowboys Stadium.

Brazil are coming off of a 4-1 win over the United States, in which young goalkeeper Rafael was spectacular in his debut and the USMNT defense fell apart late. Mexico was not stellar in their last game against Bosnia-Herzegovina, but 'Chicharito' Javier Hernandez came off the bench to bag a game-winning goal, saving them a bit of embarrassment in front of a highly partisan crowd.

Both Mexico and Brazil have something to play for other than money, as players fight to win spots and both coaches attempt to prepare their players for competitive matches, so this game should be a bit of a measuring stick between Mexico and the United States heading into World Cup qualifying.

Game Date/Time: Sunday, 2:30 p.m. ET

Venue: Cowboys Stadium, Arlington, Texas

TV: Univision (U.S.), ESPN (U.K.)
