The United States Men's National team will play its first game in America since the World Cup in a friendly against Ecuador in Connecticut.

The game is scheduled for Oct. 10 in East Hartford.

"We are really excited to get our first chance to play at home after the World Cup," US head coach Jurgen Klinsmann said. "The support from our fans in the United States and everyone that traveled to Brazil was awesome, and we want to build on that energy. We have an exciting four years ahead of us, and this is just the beginning. The US team has a great history at Rentschler Field, so we are hoping for another big crowd against Ecuador."

Ecuador, led by dynamic striker Enner Valencia, was drawn into Group E with France, Honduras, and Switzerland. They won a game over Honduras, played to a draw with Switzerland, and lost to eventual group winner France.

The US' first game since the World Cup will be in Prague Sept. 3 against the Czech Republic.
