    CHICAGO -- The United States will face Russia in a women’s international friendly on February 8, at FAU Stadium in Boca Raton, Florida, it was announced Monday. 

    It will be the first meeting between the sides in more than a decade, since the Americans posted a 5-1 win on September 29, 2002, in Uniondale, New York.  Russia did not advance past the group stage in at last summer’s UEFA Women’s Championship, falling to France 3-1 before tying England and Spain, both by 1-1 scores.

    “It’s always a positive to play countries that we maybe haven’t seen that often,” said U.S. head coach Tom Sermanni.  “The Russians have some talented players and with eight European countries qualifying for the next Women’s World Cup, every country in that tournament is going to have to navigate some very difficult European opponents.”

    The U.S., which occupies the top spot in the current FIFA World Rankings, is unbeaten in six all-time encounters with Russia (5-1-0). 

    Notes: Before taking on Russia, the U.S. will square off against Canada on January 31 in Frisco, Texas.
