U.S. TEAM TO FACE ECUADOR
BRIAN SCIARETTA - Thursday, August 14, 2014
The United States national team will host Ecuador in a friendly on October 10 at Rentschler Field in East Hartford in its first home game following the 2014 World Cup.
It will be the first time that the U.S team has played Ecuador since 2011 when it dropped a 1-0 decision at Red Bull Arena in New Jersey.
Both the U.S. national team and the Ecuador team are coming off World Cup campaigns to mixed success. The U.S. team advanced out of group play but fell to Belgium in the round of 16. Ecuador finished third in Group E behind France and Switzerland.
The U.S. team will face the Czech Republic in Prague on September 3 but that will likely be its only game that international break.
