U.S. friendlies coming together: Poland, Colombia?
In addition to Tuesday's match against Brazil in New Jersey, the United States is close to finalizing two home friendlies in early October against Poland and Colombia and looking into the possibility of a match overseas in mid-November, the Insider has learned.
All games fall on FIFA international fixture dates. The U.S. Soccer Federation declined comment, as it always does regarding matches that have not been finalized.
I'm hearing that Chicago is a candidate for the Poland game on Oct. 9 -- the Bears are on the road if the USSF wants to utilize Soldier Field instead of Toyota Park -- but the location of the possible Colombia game Oct. 12 is still unclear. (The New York area, perhaps?) Details are sketchy about the potential Nov. 17 fixture, aside from the idea of playing abroad against a team that participated in the World Cup.
Meantime, ticket sales for the USA-Brazil match at the new Meadowlands stadium have surpassed 61,000.
