The United States National Team will have their first real test during the March FIFA date against Ecuador as was announced on Saturday.

Gregg Berhalter ended his first two friendlies as the new USMNT manager with victories over Panama and Costa Rica, where the coach only count with the players of the MLS.

The American fans will have their first glimpse of Berhalter lineups with all the European-based players available. It'll become the first real test for the United States and Berhalter after missing the 2018 World Cup.

Against Ecuador, the USMNT will seek to even up the all-time series which is currently 4-5-5 in favor of the South Americans. Last time they meet, the American squad took the 2-1 win with goals from Clint Dempsey and Gyasi Zardes in the quarterfinals of the 2016 Copa America Centenario.

The United States will face Ecuador on March 21 at Orlando City Stadium before traveling to Houston for the game against Chile at BBVA Compass Stadium on March 26.
