Spain to train in U.S. for Brazil
Defending champions Spain will prepare for the World Cup in the United States along with Greece, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Ivory Coast, Nigeria and Honduras.
Soccer United Marketing, an affiliate of Major League Soccer, says it will organise exhibition games involving those six nations along with Bolivia and El Salvador from May 27 to June 10.
England announced last month they will play a pair of matches at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, facing Ecuador on June 4 and Honduras on June 7.
The World Cup will be in Brazil for the first time since 1950 and opens June 12.
Last week, ESPN FC's Doug McIntyre reported of a possible U.S.-Nigeria friendly coming out of training camp.
The Brazil-bound U.S. World Cup team plans to kick off its three-match, stateside send-off series at Stanford Stadium in Stanford, Calif., multiple sources told ESPN FC.
The Americans will base their pre-tournament training camp in Northern California before heading to Harrison, N.J., for a second match, the source said.
The United States, who are also expected to host an exhibition against CONCACAF rivals Mexico in April, open their Brazil 2014 slate on June 16 against Ghana in Natal. They will play Portugal in Manaus six days later, and close out the group stage against Germany on June 26 in Recife.
