Brazil’s national soccer team will be bouncing it up in the Beantown area tonight, as the South American sharpshooters will be facing continental rivals Venezuela in an exhibition contest at Gillette Stadium.
The BOSTON GLOBE reports that a near-capacity crowd is expected at The House That Brady & Belichick Built, with the 8:30 p.m. ET game being broadcast to over 100 countries. Even Kobe Bryant might show up to watch - unless the fans chant reminders of his performance in last night’s Game 1.
All this for an exhibition? Well, Brazil’s last Boston visit was a big success.
