US to face Spain at Gillette Stadium on June 4
On the eve of the United States' friendly against Argentina, the US Soccer Federation announced on Friday that Bob Bradley's men will face World Cup champions Spain on June 4 at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.
The game will be a final tune-up before the US begin group play of the Gold Cup three days later.
“Spain is clearly one of the most talented teams in the world,” Bradley said in a statement. “We value the opportunity to test ourselves against a team of their quality, and we couldn’t ask for a better match to prepare for the Gold Cup.”
It will be the fifth meeting all-time between the sides. The two squads last faced off in the semifinals of the 2009 Confederations Cup, a 2-0 victory for the US that ended the European side's 35-game unbeaten streak.
The Stars and Stripes and La Roja have never played one another on US soil before.
