It took several months to finally become official, but the long-rumored USA friendly vs. the Netherlands in Amsterdam has been formally announced by U.S. Soccer.
The Americans will face the Dutch at Amsterdam ArenA on March 3 (2:30pm, ESPN2/Galavision). The Netherlands, currently No. 3 in the World, is the second World Cup participant the United States has secured a friendly with for 2010, with Honduras being the other (and with a rumored Mexico friendly in the works as well).
The match is being played on a FIFA international fixture date, meaning all players will be available for the match. It should be the last chance U.S. coach Bob Bradley has to see his full squad in action before selecting his 23-man World Cup roster.
What do you think of this news? Excited to see the U.S. team face the Dutch? Thinking of making the trip?
