The U.S. Soccer Federation confirmed on Thursday that Mexico will play one of their first two friendlies after the World Cup against the United States men’s national team. The match will be played on September 11 at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee.

The meeting will be the first between both North American giants in more than a year. The last time both teams met was on June 11, 2017 at the Estadio Azteca, match that ended leveled at one goal.

It is unknown whether current coach Juan Carlos Osorio will be in charge of the Mexico National team following the conclusion of 2018 World Cup. The tournament will take place from June 14 to July 15, where Mexico will meet Germany, South Korea and Sweden in the group stage.

The United States failed to qualify for the World Cup but now have something to look forward to later this year.
