The schedule includes a pair of games vs. the Brazil National Futsal Team, and three matches vs. Brazilian clubs.
Tozer's roster includes players from both MISL and USL rosters, and several top players were not available due to outdoor commitments with USL clubs giving Tozer a chance to invite 13 upcapped players as the team continues preparation for the 2008 FIFA Futsal World Cup.
The roster includes veteran Pat Morris and Ptah Myers from the 2007 MISL Champion Philadelphia KiXX. The team's next planned activity will be a trip to Spain next month.
