USA to play Ecuador in Red Bull Arena debut

[DATEBOOK] The USA will play its second game under new coach Jurgen Klinsmann in two months in the New York area when it hosts Ecuador in an international friendly on Oct. 11, at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, N.J.

Kickoff for the USA’s first match in Red Bull Arena is set for 7 p.m. ET, and the match will be broadcast live on ESPN2, ESPN3 and Univision.

The match will be the second for the USA in early October as it will face Honduras three days earlier at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla.

Both matches fall during an international fixture window, allowing Klinsmann the opportunity to call in a full complement of players and train them before the first game.

The USA only holds a 2-4-4 record against Ecuador, but both wins have come in the last two meetings.

It won, 1-0, on March 10, 2002, in Birmingham, Ala. The game marked the international debut of goalkeeper Tim Howard.

The other win came in Bob Bradley's third game as interim coach on March 25, 2007. All-time leading goalscorer Landon Donovan had all three goals in a 3-1 victory in Tampa.

Ecuador, which has a huge following in the New York area, will be traveling to the United States directly following its opening 2014 World Cup qualifier at home on Oct. 7 against Venezuela.
