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.”

    We underrate USA at our own peril! All our wins over them has been extremely close and in Germany 06, we beat them thru a debious and soft penalty and in south Africa, they dominated us during the second half and came so close in beating us but the god of soccer and luck was on our side!! The USMT want to beat us this time and it can be possible so we should stop OVER-EXAGGERATING OUR OWN IMPORTANCE!!

    No real point of interest to Ghanaian fans.

    May Lord Almighty continue to bless our beloved Great Ghana:
    Amen!!!

    @ GH… Continue to boast mate but u know very well that our defence is not all that good and in south Africa they nearly finished us in the second half!! We should not underrate them because it can be disastrous!!! I know u can boast but sometimes u boasting is not reality!!
