The U.S. men’s national team might not have a permanent coach for awhile, but U.S. Soccer still is making plans for the side with three matches in the coming months.
The Americans will host Paraguay at Sahlen’s Stadium at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, N.C. March 27 at 7 p.m. It will be the first U.S. match in North Carolina since 2006.
They also take a trip to Europe in June, meeting the Republic of Ireland at Aviva Stadium in Dublin June 2. The U.S. will play ninth-ranked France at Groupama Stadium in Lyon June 9. Groupama Stadium will host the 2019 Women’s World Cup final.
Dave Sarachan is the interim coach and he is in line to direct the U.S. against Paraguay.
Before the federation hires a permament head coach, it must bring in a general manager for the team, U.S. Soccer CEO Dan Flynn said at the U.S. Soccer Federation’s Annual General Meeting in Orlando Saturday. He said both future hirings were priorities, but declined to give a timeline when the positions would be filled.
