Ahead of fixtures that see Brazil take on Costa Rica and United States in the the Red Bull Arena and Foxborough Stadium we headed to training to get an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the Brazilian preparations in New York.

A side that have the style to destroy most opponents before they've even graced a pitch, from tattoos to boots, these players are not short in adding the finer detail. From Morelia to Mercurial, the boots on display are diverse and as the players settle into their stride of flair, flaunt and stand out cool it's Kaka that cuts away from the crowd in distinct blackout style on his return to the squad for the first time in a year.

Some description

Brazil are famous for their glorious free-flowing skillful football and the training pitches are where the genuis is sculptured, but creativity needs to be complimented by control and Kaka's experience combined with the unpredictable wealth of youthful talent including Neymar, Firmino and Coutinho will only further fine-tune a squad full of charismatic personalities, passion and raw talent.
