FIFA.com: USA-Colombia in New York on Oct. 12th (UPDATED)

The U.S. men's national team's proposed friendly against Colombia in October has been added to the FIFA.com fixture calendar, and is listed as being played in New York.

U.S. Soccer has yet to announce the USA-Colombia match, but the FIFA Fixture list has the teams playing in New York on October 12th. U.S. Soccer usually waits for all pertinent contracts, including venue and television deals, to be finalized before announcing a match, but FIFA.com has been early in revealing USA opponents on several occasions this year (though it has gotten venues wrong before).

(UPDATE- We are hearing that the USA-Colombia friendly will NOT be taking place in the New York area.)

Where in New York would this match take place? Red Bull Arena seems like a good fit, with a 25,000-seat capacity that would make it a tough ticket to land. Having another friendly at the New Meadowlands Stadium just two months after the USA-Brazil game, and in the heart of the NFL schedule, seems extremely unlikely.

If it isn't in New York, one alternative could be Miami, which hasn't had U.S. men's national team match since 2004, but has hosted USA-Colombia five times before.

What do you think of Colombia as an opponent for the USA? Hoping the match is played somewhere other than New York, or love the idea of a USA match at Red Bull Arena?
