PRETORIA, South Africa (AP) - If this was a dress rehearsal for next year's World Cup, the United States showed it's far from ready.
The U.S. was hammered for the second time in a four-day span at the Confederations Cup, with Brazil outplaying the Americans 3-0 Thursday.
Felipe Melo scored off Maicon's free kick in the seventh minute and Robinho made it 2-0 in the 20th, completing a counterattack that began when DaMarcus Beasley fumbled a short corner kick. Maicon added the third goal in the 62nd.
The United States (0-2) finished a man short for the second straight game. Sacha Kljestan was ejected by Swiss referee Massimo Busacca in the 57th minute for a rough foul on Ramires.
