USMNT's 2015 schedule beginning to become clearer

The United States' schedule for 2015 is beginning to take shape. Germany have already announced that they are playing the U.S. in Cologne on June 10, and the Gold Cup will run from July 7-26, but there is a lot more planned, according to Sports Illustrated.

The first match of the year will be on January 28 at Chile, SI is reporting. That will be followed by a February 8 contest against Panama at the StubHub Center in Carson, CA. Both of those matches will be with a largely domestic team, so nearly all players who play in MLS.

Jurgen Klinsmann won't be able to get his first choice players together until the March FIFA dates, when they will reportedly play against Denmark and Switzerland away. The U.S. will then play Mexico on home soil on April 15, again with a domestic team.

Once the summer comes around, the U.S. will take advantage of FIFA dates and pre-Gold Cup training camp to prepare for the tournament. That means a friendly against the Netherlands on June 15 in Amsterdam before the match against Germany in Cologne. Finally, the U.S. will play two friendlies in late June and early July.

Right now, the only match confirmed is the one against Germany, and it has only been confirmed by Germany, but SI has the rest from their sources.

Klinsmann says he wants to challenge the U.S. against the best teams possible and to get the team together regularly for camps and matches. He's definitely making good on that desire.
