Jurgen Klinsmann's USA lost their first proper test on Brazilian soil ahead of this summer's World Cup by losing 2-1 to Sao Paulo in a behind-closed-doors friendly on Thursday.

As part of the Americans' preparations for 2014, an special camp had been arranged in Brazil so as to allow the players an insight into the country they will call home for as long as possible later in the year.

Unfortunately for the USA and Klinsmann, the Tricolor were in no mood to make it an easy run-around for their opponents and actually wound up as victors in a well-mannered encounter.

Sao Paulo took the lead through veteran striker Luis Fabiano and although USA managed an equaliser from Chris Wondolowski, Selecao hopeful Jadson sealed the ficticious three points for the hosts, who changed their entire line-up at the break.

USA will line-up in Group G in the World Cup alongside Germany, Portugal and Ghana.
