U.S. to face Ecuador in soccer exhibition
CHICAGO -- The U.S. soccer team will play Ecuador in an exhibition March 25 in Tampa Bay, Fla., the first game in which interim coach Bob Bradley will be able to select most of the team's Europe based players.
The Americans will play Denmark in Carson, Calif., on Saturday in their first game since last year's World Cup, then meet Mexico in Glendale, Ariz., on Feb. 7. The game against Ecuador and a March 28 match against Guatemala in Frisco, Texas, are during a period in which FIFA rules require clubs to release players to national teams.
The U.S. team is preparing for the CONCACAF Gold Cup (June 6-24) and Copa America (June 26-July 15).
