Report: USMNT to face England in November friendly


Italy recently announced a November friendly with the U.S. Men’s National Team, and it appears the Azzurri aren’t the only high-profile European squad on the USMNT schedule this Fall.

Goal USA reported on Sunday that the U.S. is finalizing a deal to face England in a November friendly. The match would be the first between the two teams since the 2010 World Cup.

It would make November a busy month for the USMNT, who would take on Italy and England during the November international fixture date with both reportedly being played outside of the U.S. The England clash is reportedly set to be played in England, marking the USMNT’s first trip to the country since facing Colombia there in 2014.

The U.S. is also set to face Bolivia, Ireland and France this summer.


    • Lack of friendlies? There are roughly the same number of friendlies…1-2 each FIFA Date. The problem is going to be getting European teams on the schedule in the future. Getting the opportunity to play France, Italy, & England all in the same year is going to get harder, and harder with the new European & CONCACAF Competition.
      Hopefully we’ll find a way to get more SA, African, & Asian friendlies to fill in for what use to be the European nations, and not get stuck with worthless games against Minnows.

  1. England is in Group 4 of League A (Top 12 Countries) they play Croatia Nov. 18 so the likely fixture with the US would Nov. 15 when Croatia faces off with Spain in Group 4 play.
