[DATEBOOK] The USA will face Ukraine -- the highest ranked team not to qualify for the 2014 World Cup -- on March 5 in its only friendly with its full national team before the final World Cup squad assembles in May.

The game will be played in Ukraine at an undetermined location.

"Ukraine is a very talented team and was very unfortunate not to qualify for the World Cup," said U.S. head coach Jurgen Klinsmann. "We want to continue to make statements that we can get results in games like these. Since this is our only chance to bring in all the players before the pre-World Cup training camp, this is a huge opportunity for them to make their case to be included on the 23-man roster for Brazil."

Ukraine fell to France in a two-leg playoff series for the World Cup. The USA has never beaten Ukraine, tying 0-0 in 1992 and losing 2-1 and 1-0 in 1993.
