Jacksonville to host U.S. Men's soccer team match

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The U.S. Men's National Team will play Nigeria on June 7 at EverBank Field for its last match before the World Cup.

It will be one of three matches and part of a series, with the other matches hosted in San Francisco, and Harrison, N.J.

The series begins with a match against Azerbaijan at 7 p.m. PT on May 27 at Candlestick Park and the second match will be against Turkey on June 1 at Red Bull Arena at 2 p.m. ET.

"We are absolutely thrilled with the schedule we have put together for the Send-Off Series," said U.S. Men's National Team head coach Jurgen Klinsmann. "We have some fantastic opponents that will help us get prepared for the teams we will meet in the World Cup, and also the opportunity to experience different climates and conditions in the venues. There has been amazing support from our fans these last years on our path to Brazil, and we know there will be awesome atmospheres in each of the stadiums. It's the perfect way to start our journey."

Team U.S. travels to their base camp in Sao Paulo, Brazil, after the match in Jacksonville for training.
