Germany announces friendly against USMNT next year

Friday November 28th, 2014

The United States men's soccer team will take on Germany in a friendly match next year, the German Football Federation announced Friday.

U.S. Soccer has yet to confirm the match.

According to the federation's website, the match is set for June 10, 2015, at the RheinEnergieStadion in Cologne. Germany also announced a match against Australia in March and a match against the Netherlands in November.

The last time the United States and Germany met was at last summer's World Cup. Germany defeated the U.S. 1-0 in the Group G preliminary round match.

Overall, the U.S. men finished 2014 with a 6-5-4 record, only winning once in eight matches after defeating Ghana to open their World Cup run. Belgium eliminated the USA from the World Cup in the round of 16, winning 2-1 in extra time.
