The U.S. men's national team will play the Czech Republic in a friendly four days prior to its meeting with Turkey, U.S. Soccer announced Wednesday.

The international friendly will be played May 25 at an undetermined location. Between the March 3 friendly with the Netherlands and the matches with the Czech Republic and Turkey, the United States will have three European tune-ups before the World Cup.

"These games will provide a great opportunity to fine tune our plans for the matches in South Africa and test ourselves against some of the better teams in Europe," U.S. coach Bob Bradley said in a statement.

The Americans have faced the Czechs two other times, both in World Cups. They lost their opening game of the 2006 World Cup to the Czechs 3-0, and their opening game of the 1990 World Cup to then-Czechoslovakia 5-1.

What do you think of the U.S. friendly line-up now? Think Turkey and the Czech Republic will be good tests before the World Cup?
