Czechs to host US in soccer friendly ahead of Euro 2016 campaign

The Czech Republic will host the United States in a friendly soccer international in Prague on September 3. It will be the Czechs’ last warm-up game for their qualifying campaign for the 2016 European Championship in France, which begins against the Netherlands six days later, also in the Czech capital. Manager Pavel Vrba said he had chosen the US because Jurgen Klinsmann’s side played a similar attacking style to the Dutch.
