WASHINGTON United States (Xinhua) --
The US men’s soccer team will play Brazil,
England and Italy this fall, the US Soccer Association announced
The US will play
Brazil on September 7th at East Rutherford, New
Jersey, four days before a previously announced game against
Mexico in Nashville, Tennessee.
In November, the US
will head to Europe for a head-to-head with England at Wembley
Stadium in London on November 15th. The team will
close out its 2018 schedule on November 20 against Italy at a
location still to be determined.
The US will also
play two more home games in October, with details to be
confirmed at a later date, the association added.
“We are at the
beginning phase of building our identity,” said US men’s team
general manager Earnie Stewart. “These matches are obviously
huge challenges, and for young players it’s an opportunity to
see the benchmark of some of the top teams in the world. We can
use these experiences to learn about ourselves and take the next
steps towards developing into the team we want to become.”
The US failed to
qualify for the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Russia
