BRIAN SCIARETTA - Sunday, January 19, 2014
The United States national team will face the Ukraine on March 5th for its last friendly on a FIFA international date before World Cup camp opens in May.
The game will be a good challenge for the U.S team as the Ukraine are currently ranked 18th in the world and are the highest ranked team that did not qualify for this summer's World Cup in Brazil. The United States and Ukraine have met just three times with the U.S holding a 0-2-1 record. The last meeting was in 1992 in New Jersey where the teams played to a 0-0 draw.
The U.S team is presently in Brazil for its annual January camp. Last week it fell to Sao Paolo 2-1 in a friendly. In that game the lone U.S goal was scored by Chris Wondolowski.
