Reports: USA to face Slovakia in Nov. 14 friendly

U.S. Crest

The U.S. national team has yet to announce a second November friendly to go along with its match against Denmark, but reports out of Europe, including this one out of Slovakia, suggest that the Americans will take on Slovakia on Nov. 14.

Slovakian national team head coach Vladimir Weiss is quoted confirming the USA friendly in Slovakia, but U.S. Soccer would not confirm the friendly as of Friday afternoon.

Slovakia qualified for the World Cup after topping a qualifying group that included Slovenia, Czech Republic and Poland. The Slovak squad features several top European players, including Napoli star Marek Hamsik, Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel and qualifying scoring leader and VFL Bochum midfielder Stanislav Sestak.

What do you think about the USA facing Slovakia? Like the opponent? Who are you hoping to see called up?

    Will be kind of a bummer if some of our MLS players like Donovan and/or Holden, Clark are still in Playoff during these friendlies. Though will give someone else an opportunity.

    Here’s the line-up I currently want to see:


    Subs: Guzan, Torres, Jozy, Clark, Spector, Bornstein, Marshall.

    Slovakia was never a minnow. It was previously an average team capable of pulling an occasional upset. The Slovaks have progressed a great deal.
