CHICAGO (AP) — The U.S. will play its fourth straight home World Cup qualifier against Mexico at Columbus, Ohio, and will host Germany in an exhibition game at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C.

The U.S. Soccer Federation announced the sites of remaining home qualifiers on Thursday, saying the team will host Panama at Seattle on June 11; Honduras at Sandy, Utah, on June 18; Mexico at Columbus on Sept. 10; and Jamaica at Kansas City, Kan., on Oct. 11.

After losing 2-1 at Honduras last month in the opener of the final round of North and Central America and the Caribbean, the U.S. meets Costa Rica on Friday night at Commerce City, Colo., then plays Tuesday at Mexico. The top three nations qualify for the 32-nation field in Brazil next year. The No. 4 team advances to a playoff, likely against New Zealand.
