The United States Men’s National Team could face another terrific opponent on the road in March. According to a report by Soccer by Ives, the USMNT will take on Wales in a friendly on March 30th in Cardiff.

The rumor of a Wales matchup was first reported by Steven Goff of the Washington Post back in December:

The USMNT will take on the Netherlands in Eindhoven on March 26th, and the Wales match would complete a March window abroad for the Yanks. Wales is an opponent the USMNT has only faced one other time in their history. The teams faced each other in a May 26, 2003 friendly in San Jose, which the USMNT won 2-0. Wales has improved considerably since then, as they are currently tied with the USMNT at 22nd in the FIFA World Rankings.

Hit the comments to discuss the USMNT possibly having a formidable slate of road matches in Europe during the March international window.
