The U.S. men’s national team’s fall schedule is starting to get filled out with European and African opposition making the trip to the United States this October.
Germany and Ghana will oppose the USMNT on October 14 and 17 respectively for a pair of international friendlies, U.S. Soccer announced Tuesday. The USMNT will face the Germans in East Hartford, Conn. on Oct. 14 before closing out a two-match window on Oct. 17 against the Ghanians in Nashville, Tenn.
Germany is set to host the 2024 UEFA European Championships next year and will use this friendly as preparation for the tournament. The USMNT holds a 4-7-0 all-time record against Germany with the last meeting coming in 2015, where Bobby Wood’s late winner propelled the Americans to a 2-1 triumph.
The Americans have defeated Ghana twice in four all-time meetings, with one of those victories coming in the 2014 FIFA World Cup. The last head-to-head meeting came in 2017 in East Hartford, Conn.
The USMNT is currently preparing to face Concacaf rivals Mexico in the upcoming Nations League Final Four, scheduled to begin on June 15. B.J. Callaghan was recently elevated to the team’s interim head coaching role as Anthony Hudson departed the program for a new opportunity.
