We went pitch side at the Red Bull Arena for the latest edition of our 'Framed' series to bring you an exclusive look at the five-times world champions who arrived in New Jersey for their penultimate friendly against Costa Rica before next month's World Cup qualifiers.

The soccer landscape in New York has never look better. The city is currently playing host to array of talent, and with Brazil's national football team touching down last week, fans needed no encouragement to see some of the world's best in action on their home soil. Neymar, Marcelo, Willian and the MLS's very own, Kaka, were together for the first time since their Copa America disappointment to tune-up for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers. A revamped team took care of business against Costa Rica, with Zenit St Petersburg striker Hulk scoring after nine minutes. Neymar himself only played eight minutes of his side's 1-0 win.

A series of stunning photographs, captured by our man Nathan Congleton, caught the Brazilian team in action at the Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey. Alongside the Nike Mercurial, adidas' X15 and ACE15 offerings and, not forgetting, Hulk's Mizuno Morelia, it was Kaka that cut himself away from the crowd with his blackout adidas Copa Mundial boots as he returned to the Brazil national squad for the first time in a year.
