CHAD WINGER - Wednesday, February 22, 2006
US head coach Bruce Arena will have one final opportunity to assess his World Cup roster selections as the US and Jamaica have confirmed an April 11 friendly set to be held in Cary, North Carolina.
The US, who have never lost to the Reggae Boyz - holding a 9-0-7 record all-time, will host their CONCACAF rivals in the last match before Arena names his preliminary roster for the finals in Germany.
Though the official deadline set by FIFA is not until mid-May, the US maestro has been quoted previously to have an April target date.
Following the Jamaica showdown, the US will play three further as-of-yet announced friendlies before travelling to the US base town of Hamburg in northern Germany.
