Report: US Soccer Federation to celebrate 100th anniversary with match vs. Germany
It would make for some birthday party.
The German soccer federation on Wednesday released details of a match to be played against the US national team on June 2, 2013 in Washington, D.C., to commemorate the 100-year anniversary of the US Soccer Federation, which was founded in 1913 (see the report in English here).
Five days later, the US is scheduled to travel to Jamaica for a CONCACAF World Cup qualifier on June 7.
No official word yet from US Soccer on confirmation of the date or the venue.
It would mark the first match between Germany and the USA ever since former German star and manager Jurgen Klinsmann took over the reins as manager of the US squad. Germany are currently coached by Klinsmann's former assistant, Joachim “Jogi” Löw, who replaced Klinsmann as manager following the 2006 World Cup.
Meanwhile, the announcement by the German federation also made mention of a May 29 date in New York, Boston or Miami against an opponent to be named.
