The English national team will play friendlies against Honduras and Ecuador in Miami as part of its pre-World Cup training camp there, but England will not meet the U.S. national team, a U.S.-based source with knowledge of the plans told SI.com on Thursday.

U.S. Soccer and England’s FA had discussed arranging a friendly, the source said, but talks broke down in part because of logistics: England wanted the game to take place in Florida or on the East Coast, while the U.S. wanted it to happen on the West Coast (closer to where the U.S.’s pre-World Cup camp is likely to take place).

U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann told SI.com a few months ago that Florida was too humid to be a location for the U.S.’s pre-World Cup camp.
