The Copa America Centenario is really heating up

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Colorado Rapids announced today that Dick's Sporting Goods Park will host an International Friendly featuring Brazil and Panama as both teams prepare for the 2016 Copa America Centenario.

From the Rapids press release:

The Colorado Rapids announced today that Dick’s Sporting Goods Park will host an international friendly between Brazil and Panama on Sunday, May 29 at 7:30 p.m. MT.

The international match will be the final test for both countries as they prepare for Copa America Centenario, an historic tournament featuring 16 nations from CONCACAF and CONMEBOL. The month-long competition will take place across the United States from June 3-26 and therefore both squads for this game are expected to be drawn from their full Copa America roster.

This is a pretty significant match to come to Dick's and with the caliber of talent that Brazil has, this should be a darn entertaining match.  Panama could feature former Rapids forward Gabriel Torres, so this could be a bit of a homecoming for him.

So what say you Rapids fans?  Are you excited about the matchup?  Let us know in the comment sections below!
