CHICAGO – Talen Energy Stadium will host an international friendly between the United States and Bolivia in Chester, Pa., May 28 at 7 p.m. ET, U.S. Soccer announced Thursday afternoon.
The match kicks off the USMNT’s summer tour, which includes a visit to Ireland in Dublin June 2 before concluding against No. 9-ranked France at Groupama Stadium in Lyon June 9.
“With the addition of the Bolivia game, we have a great set of experiences on the table for our young players this summer,” U.S. interim head coach Dave Sarachan said. “Bolivia presents different challenges than Ireland and France. We’re thrilled to be starting the tour in Philadelphia, one of the great soccer communities in the United States and a fan base that has always supported the national team.”
The American men’s third visit to Talen Energy Stadium marks the eighth match against Bolivia, with the U.S. facing a 1-2-4 deficit since the series began in 1993. The last encounter came just prior to the opening of the 2016 Copa America Centenario, when Christian Pulisic became the youngest U.S. player to score a goal in the modern era, capping off a 4-0 rout in Kansas City .
