The United States Under-23 men's national team is going to get a proper tune-up for CONCACAF Olympic qualifying, as it will square off against Mexico's Under-23 side in a friendly at FC Dallas Stadium in Frisco, Texas, on Feb. 29.

The match will be a culmination of a 10-day training camp in Frisco. Kickoff is slated for 10 p.m. 

"This game is very important for our players and comes at a critical time for us before the start of Olympic qualifying," U.S. U-23 coach Caleb Porter said in a release. "In this camp we expect to have the majority of the players who are in contention for final roster spots for qualifying. A match against Mexico will serve as a great measuring stick both individually and collectively as we put the finishing touches on our roster selection."

The match is the same day as the senior national team's friendly against Italy, meaning that some players who are part of both player pools will wind up missing out on the trip to Genoa to focus on the training camp and pre-qualifying friendly.
