US soccer to play exhibition at Russia on Nov. 14

  •  

CHICAGO (AP) - The U.S. soccer team will complete its 2012 schedule with an exhibition against Russia at Krasnodar on Nov. 14.

The U.S. Soccer Federation announced the match Thursday. The game could be the last for the Americans before starting the final round of World Cup qualifying on Feb. 6.

U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann is leaning toward scrapping the annual January training camp in Carson, Calif., which started in 2004.

Officials from the six teams in the final round of qualifying in North and Central America and the Caribbean - the U.S., Mexico, Costa Rica, Honduras, Panama and Jamaica - are to meet Friday in Miami in an attempt to work out a schedule for the matches next year. If they can't, FIFA would conduct a draw.
