The United States men's national team will play its first competitive home match since the World Cup in Orlando.
  • Nations League resumes next month
  • USMNT visits Grenada
  • Then will host El Salvador

WHAT HAPPENED? The USMNT picked Orlando City's Exploria Stadium as the venue for its CONCACAF Nations League match against El Salvador on March 27, three days after a trip to Grenada. The location enables the team to play in a warmer climate at a time northern locations could still receive snow, while minimising the flight time back from Grenada.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: After two friendlies in a January camp made up mostly of youngsters, more World Cup stars are set to be welcomed back to the group for the March games. However, it's still expected that interim coach Anthony Hudson will pick several newcomers who performed well in the friendlies, such as San Jose Earthquakes prospect Cade Cowell.
