Columbus to host Mexico-U.S. qualifier

CHICAGO -- The U.S. will play its fourth straight home World Cup qualifier against Mexico at Columbus, Ohio, and will host Germany in an exhibition game at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C.

The U.S. Soccer Federation announced the sites of remaining home qualifiers on Thursday, saying it will host Panama at Seattle on June 11; Honduras at Sandy, Utah, on June 18; Mexico at Columbus on Sept. 10; and Jamaica at Kansas City, Kan., on Oct. 11.

After losing 2-1 at Honduras last month in the opener of the final round of North and Central America and the Caribbean, the U.S. meets Costa Rica on Friday night at Commerce City, Colo., then plays Tuesday at Mexico. The top three nations qualify for the 32-nation field in Brazil next year and the No. 4 team advances to a playoff, likely against New Zealand.

In previous qualifiers against Mexico at Columbus, the U.S. won by 2-0 scores in February 2001, September 2005 and February 2009.

The game against Germany will be played June 2 and part of the U.S. Soccer Federation's 100th anniversary celebration. It had been announced in November by the German federation for May 29.

The Germans are likely to be without several stars. Mesut Oezil and Sami Khedira compete for Real Madrid, which plays its final league match on June 1 or 2.
