U.S. to play Bosnia for 1st time Aug. 14

CHICAGO---The U.S. National Team will travel to Bosnia-Herzegovina for an international friendly in Sarajevo on Wednesday, Aug. 14 for the final match before resuming World Cup qualifying less than a month later.

Kickoff at Asim Ferhatovic Hase Stadium is set for 8:30 p.m. local (3:30 p.m. ET). The match will be broadcast live on ESPN2.

"As we head into the huge World Cup qualifiers in September, this is a great opportunity to get our players together and continue to build on the progress we have made," U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann said in a statement. "We still have a lot of work to do, and we want to constantly measure ourselves against the top teams in the world. Bosnia-Herzegovina are on an amazing run right now, and the game will be a good challenge for us."

This match will mark the first meeting between the two countries.

Bosnia-Herzegovina is ranked No. 15 in the world, its best ranking, thanks to its impressive performance in European qualifying for the World Cup. After six matches, Bosnia-Herzegovina leads Group G with five wins and a draw, and holds a three-point lead over Greece. The Dragons are on an undefeated run of nine matches.

After the friendly against Bosnia-Herzegovina, the U.S. will resume qualifying for the World Cup with a match in Costa Rica on Sept. 6, before returning home to face Mexico at Columbus Crew Stadium in Columbus, Ohio on Sept. 10.
