The U.S. Men’s National Team’s long-rumored friendly against Russia was made official on Thursday, with the USMNT taking on the Russians in Krasnodar on Nov. 14th.
Currently ranked No. 12 in the world, Russia is enjoying a strong World Cup qualifying campaign and recently defeated Portugal to stay unbeaten in group play (4-0 without a single goal allowed).
The Americans have never beaten Russia, holding an 0-2-2 record against them. The last meeting between the two came on April 26, 2000, with the Russians posting a 2-0 victory in Moscow.
What do you think of this match? Excited to see how the Americans stack up against the Russians? Think the U.S. can get a result?
