USMNT meets Bosnia and Herzegovina in a friendly match in December

4

The US men’s national team will face Bosnia and Herzegovina in a new friendly scheduled for December 18, the Football Association announced on Tuesday.

The match will be held at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California.

The friendly match is planned outside an official international sports window and is expected to consist of mostly US-based players. To prepare for the match, Berhalter will conduct a training camp in Carson starting on December 5.

This will be the third meeting between the two countries since the formation of the Football Association of Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1992.

The American side dominated the first match, with a hat trick by Jozy Altidore that inspired the 4-3 victory on August 14, 2013. The two then met again during the 2018 game schedule, which culminated in a 0-0 draw.

The American Football Association acknowledged that they had scheduled the match to prepare the American side for the January round of the World Cup qualifiers.

After the decisive matches in November against Mexico and Jamaica, USMNT will face El Salvador at home on January 27, Canada away on January 30 and against Honduras on February 2.

The United States is currently in second place, behind rivals Mexico, with 11 points in six games and a record of 3-2-1.

USMNT will continue to hold the usual training camp in January to enable Major League Soccer players to maintain fitness during the off-season. The Americans who play abroad will train as the World Cup qualifiers approach.
