Details: In the final round of World Cup qualifying, the U.S. Men’s Soccer Team will face El Salvador at Lower.com Field. While the squad sits in good position to qualify for November’s World Cup in Qatar, this game is an important matchup toward that goal of making the big tournament. Columbus Crew’s stadium hosted a national game in October — a win against Costa Rica — but Columbus has long been considered the unofficial home of U.S. Soccer, so a second match here isn’t unheard of.
