Ghana's World Cup opponents USA confirm Czech Republic friendly
The USA national team will take on the Czech Republic in a friendly later this year.
Juergen Klinsmann’s US side will meet the Czechs in Prague on September 3 as Pavel Vrba’s men prepare for their opening Euro2016 qualifier against Holland six days later.
Klinsmann, who takes his side to Brazil for the 2014 World Cup this summer, was happy to confirm that the US had agreed a friendly with FIFA’s 27th ranked side.
“While we are focused on preparing for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, we must always look ahead and therefore we are thrilled to get this match against the Czech Republic,” Klinsmann said in a release.
“Historically, they have a very good team, and they are going to be preparing for a huge challenge against the Netherlands in their opening game of qualifying for the European Championships, so we expect this to be a tough match and another good benchmark for our team.”
