ATLANTA, GEORGIA—The United States Men’s National Team (USMNT) for soccer is set to face dangerous Canada in a World Cup Qualifying match on September 5 at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee.
The face-off of the USMNT and Canada is expected to be exciting since the latter ranked 70 in the world is seeking its first World Cup berth since 1986.
The USMNT is confident facing Canada at home since they have a decent four wins, two losses, and one draw record in Nashville.
This record pertains to their win over Trinidad and Tobago 3-0 in a qualifier on April 1, 2009, behind a three-goal game by Jozy Altidore.
The U.S. also tied Panama 1-1 in Nashville before 47,622 people during the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup, beat Mexico 1-0 in a 2018 exhibition before 40,194, and defeated Jamaica 3-1 before 28,473 in the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup.
Before facing the Canadians, the Americans are set to face first El Salvador on Sept. 2 and precede a Sept. 8 match at Honduras.
To take full advantage of their home-field, the USMNT is set to train in Nashville starting Aug. 30, with many flying in from European weekend matches.
