London Bound: Colombia announce USMNT friendly


The United States and Colombia enjoyed Cinderella runs through this year’s World Cup. Now, they will face each other in an impromptu friendly.

The Colombian Football Federation announced the Cafeteros will be taking on the United States in London on November 14th at Craven Cottage, home of the recently relegated Fulham FC.

The USSF has yet to confirm the friendly encounter.

Both the U.S. and Colombia came close to scheduling a friendly just last month, but those plans fell through. With an open FIFA date, both sides have apparently reached an agreement that will take their encounter to the heart of England. The last time these two teams played was October 2010; a 0-0 draw at PPL Park.

For the USMNT, this would be the second of two international friendlies scheduled in November. The team is scheduled to face Ireland at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin on November 18th. The U.S. is coming off of a disappointing showing in October, drawing both Honduras and Ecuador.
