Datebook: USA-T&T will be played at altitude in Colorado

The USA's next World Cup 2018 qualifier, against Trinidad & Tobago, will be played at Dick's Sporting Goods Park, the home of the Colorado Rapids, on June 8 in Commerce City, Colo.

Three days later, the USA will play Mexico in Mexico City at Estadio Azteca. That game has been moved up two days because of Mexico's participation in the Confederations Cup in Russia.

A friendly is expected to be played before the USA-T&T game at Rio Tinto Stadium in Utah, giving the USA two tests in altitude before heading to Mexico City.

The USA has posted two shutout victories, including the Snow Clasico in 2013 against Costa Rica, in the last two World Cup qualifying cycles at Dick's Sporting Goods Park.
