USMNT schedule for final round of Concacaf World Cup qualifying is set

By

The U.S. Men’s National Team will open the final round of Concacaf World Cup qualifying in the fall with a pair of road trips to Central America sandwiched around a home clash with a fast-rising foe.

Tuesday night’s results in Concacaf qualifying saw Canada, El Salvador and Panama secure the final three spots in the eight-team Octagonal, the final round of Concacaf qualifying that has replaced the old Hexagonal Round format.

Those results help determine the USMNT’s schedule of opponents for the Octagonal, with the team’s first qualifier taking place on September 2 on the road against El Salvador.

The Americans will play their first home Octagonal qualifier on September 5 against Canada, before returning to Central America to take on Honduras on September 8.

Here is a rundown of the full World Cup qualifying schedule the USMNT will face, starting in September (specific dates have yet to be determined):
