U.S. Soccer has selected Orlando, Fla. to host the U.S. men’s national team’s Concacaf Nations League home match against Canada Nov. 15. Kickoff at Exploria Stadium is set for 7 p.m. ET (ESPN2, UniMas and TUDN).
With the participants for the final round of qualifying for the 2022 World Cup to be determined based on FIFA rankings at the conclusion of this tournament, Nations League’s matches have added significance for their impact on the rankings.
“Winning at home is critical in these tournaments, so finding a home-field advantage is important,” USMNT head coach Gregg Berhalter said. “When you talk about great environments, the atmosphere in this stadium is one of the best in the country. Like we’ve seen in previous visits, the fans in Orlando are there when you need them and we look forward to their support.”
The USA is joined by Canada and Cuba in Group A of the 2019-20 Concacaf Nations League A. Only the winner of the group will advance to the knockout stage. Canada opened play with consecutive victories against Cuba by an aggregate score of 7-0.
