SEATTLE — Camila scored in the 87th minute and Brazil rallied to tie Japan 1-1 on Thursday night in the opening game of the Tournament of Nations.

Camila, who came in off the bench in the second half, beat goalkeeper Ayaka Yamashita with a blast from some 25 yards out. Camila plays for the NWSL’s Orlando Pride.

Yuka Momiki, also a second-half sub, scored for Japan in the 63rd minute off a across from Emi Nakajima.

Five-time FIFA World Player of the Year Marta, who came to the United States this season to play for the Pride, had a good chance in the first half but Yamashita tipped the shot clear.

The United States was set to play Australia in the second game at CenturyLink Field. The multi-city summer tournament shifts to San Diego on Sunday.
