The international friendly will come four days before the team travels to Brussels to face Belgium.

The last time the U.S. and Costa Rica met, Jonathan Bornstein saved the Americans from defeat with a tying goal in the fifth minute of second-half stoppage time. The 2009 match concluded 2010 World Cup qualifying, and Bornstein’s goal resulted in Costa Rica missing the World Cup in South Africa.

Tickets will go on sale July 15 at 10 a.m.
