[DATEBOOK]Eight days before it opens the 2013 Hexagonal at Honduras, the USA will host Canada on Jan. 29 at Houston's BBVA Compass Stadium (kickoff: 6 p.m. CT). The game will follow a training camp for MLS players and European-based players on winter break.

The final round of qualifying for the 2014 World Cup kicks off for the USA on Feb. 6 against Honduras in San Pedro Sula.

The United States has a 15-game unbeaten streak (8-0-7) since dropping a 2-0 decision to Canada on April 2, 1985, in Vancouver. The lifetime series record stands at 13-8-10 in the USA's favor.

The teams played to a 0-0 tie in their last meeting on June 3 in Toronto. The match celebrated the 100-year anniversary of the Canadian Soccer Association and also preceded the start of the semifinal round qualifying.

"The match against Canada will come at the end of an important training camp as we get players ready for the World Cup qualifier against Honduras, and also get a good look at some up and coming players in the national team pool,” said U.S. head coach Jurgen Klinsmann said in a statement. "Obviously, we have a great history with Canada, and they were unlucky not to qualify for the final round. The stadium in Houston is awesome and the fans have been incredibly supportive there, so for us it’s a great way to start off the centennial year of U.S. Soccer."
