USMNT friendlies: Who are the national team rivals? Match dates and times

After failing to qualify for the World Cup four years ago, the United States Men’s National Team (USMNT) is back, having qualified for this year’s tournament in Qatar.

For the international break in September, the USMNT is looking forward to a pair of friendlies against Japan and Saudi Arabia, with both games set to take place in Europe, which will make it easier for players based in Europe to travel.

European teams were unavailable for friendlies in September as they have to play UEFA Nations League matches during this international break. There is no international window scheduled for October as domestic leagues look to work on fixtures ahead of the 2022 World Cup this winter.

USA World Cup schedule: group stage

The United States have been drawn into Group B of the World Cup, alongside England, Iran and Wales. The United States will face Wales first on the opening day of the World Cup. The game against England is second and Gregg Berhalter’s side will complete the group with a game against Iran.
