The USA's September international window features dates vs. Mexico and Uruguay.
CHICAGO (AP) – The U.S. men's soccer team will play Uruguay in an exhibition at St. Louis's Busch Stadium on Sept. 10, four days after the Americans face Mexico at East Rutherford, New Jersey.
The match, announced Thursday, is the final friendly of the year for the Americans.
Both games are on FIFA dates, allowing the U.S. to call in Europe-based players for the match.
The Americans finish their first year under new coach Gregg Berhalter with the new Concacaf Nations League, hosting Cuba on Oct. 11 and Canada on Nov. 15, and playing at Canada on Oct. 15 and at Cuba on Nov. 19.
“We look forward to this challenge against an excellent Uruguayan team. They possess a mixture of top-level offensive difference makers and experienced defenders that have competed on the world stage for years,” Berhalter said in a statement. “Part of the development of our team is being able to consistently compete against teams with the profile of Uruguay. In the national team we also speak about the importance of tradition, and St. Louis has one of the great soccer legacies in the United States. We look forward to adding to that history in September.”
After failing to reach the 2018 World Cup, the Americans start qualifying for the 2022 World Cup next June.
St. Louis is among the candidates for a Major League Soccer expansion team.
