It appears U.S. men's national team head coach Jurgen Klinsmann is making a concentrated effort to get to know CONCACAF teams prior to World Cup qualifying.

According to a report, the United States will travel to Canada to take on its northern rival in a friendly before World Cup qualifying begins in June. The official date and location of the game is expected to be announced soon.

Should it happen, the game would mark the U.S. team's fifth match against CONCACAF opposition since Klinsmann was appoined head coach last summer. The U.S. team has already played Mexico, Costa Rica, Honduras and Panama under Klinsmann.

The United States last played Canada in the Gold Cup last June, with the Americans prevailing, 2-0, off goals from Jozy Altidore and Clint Dempsey in the tournament opener for both teams at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan.

The Americans are also rumored to be playing friendlies against Brazil and Scotland in the United States prior to their first World Cup qualifier against Antigua and Barbuda on June 8.

What do you think of a potential friendly against Canada? Would you make the trip up north? See it as a good test before qualifying?
