The United States men’s national team is going to have an interesting Fall 2018.
Already reportedly ready to tangle with fellow World Cup absentees Italy at a neutral European venue on Nov. 20, the USMNT will meet England somewhere in the United Kingdom.
That’s complicated by England’s UEFA Nations League match scheduled for Nov. 18, which leaves little room for a date. The international break runs Nov. 12-20.
It’s exciting for U.S. supporters not simply for the caliber of competition, but because European-based dates during the MLS Playoffs generally represent a chance to see European-based players.
That means players like Keaton Parks (Benfica), Tim Weah (PSG), and Luca de la Torre (Fulham) could get looks alongside Christian Pulisic, John Brooks, and Weston McKennie.
