Grant Wahl has claimed that the United States Men's National Team will play a 2014 World Cup qualifier at Rio Tinto Stadium on June 18 — a date on which the U.S. faces Honduras.
In a Twitter conversation with a Real Salt Lake supporter (embedded below), Wahl said he "broke some news" about the match.
@trevor_brady Sure--I'll be out for the US game, which is likely to happen on June 18 (whoops, broke some news there...)— Grant Wahl (@GrantWahl) February 10, 2013
Whether it comes to fruition or not is undetermined at this point, but Rio Tinto Stadium has already been confirmed as a Gold Cup location. The date for the Gold Cup match is not yet confirmed but is likely to be a double-header.
Wahl has a strong reporting track record and is the author of the well-received book The Beckham Experiment, which details David Beckham's arrival in the U.S. and includes the memorable line "This is not correct!" from former LA Galaxy full back Abel Xavier.
