Last updated at 10:42 20 March 2008

The United States have confirmed they will take on England in a friendly at

Wembley on May 28.

It will be only the USA's second trip to face England, the first being in 1994. Should David Beckham be omitted from Fabio Capello's squad for next week's France friendly, the USA match could see the Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder win his 100th cap against the country where he currently plays.

USA head coach Bob Bradley said: "We have consistently said that one of our

goals is to play matches against good opponents and in environments that will

really challenge our team.

"In addition to the quality of the English team, the tradition and passion for

the sport in that country, the media focus, and the intensity of the fans all

combine to make this a fantastic opportunity for our group."

He continued on the United States Soccer Federation website, "We

are very pleased with the schedule we have put together to help us prepare for

World Cup qualifying."

The USA - who lost 2-0 when the nations clashed at Wembley in 1994 - will also

face Spain in Santander on June 4.
