CHICAGO (AP) - The U.S. women's soccer team will face New Zealand in a pair of exhibitions next month, a rematch of their meeting in last year's Olympic quarterfinals.

The Oct. 27 game at Candlestick Park will be the first time the U.S. women have played in San Francisco in their 28-year history. The teams will then travel to Columbus, Ohio, for a game on Oct. 30.

The United States is 9-1 against New Zealand, including a 2-0 victory in the quarterfinals of the 2012 Olympics. The Americans went on to win their third straight gold medal in London and are currently the top-ranked team in the world.
