IRELAND will host the United States in a friendly on November 18 fresh from Jurgen Klinsmann's side's heroics at the World Cup.
The US won plenty of plaudits for emerging from the 'group of death' at the expense of Portugal and pushing Belgium close in their last-16 tie.
Ranked 13th in the world, the visitors are likely to include English Premier League stars Tim Howard, Brad Guzan and Geoff Cameron, as well as Clint Dempsey and Michael Bradley, in their squad.
This will be the ninth time the nations have met and the first occasion since April 2002, when Ireland won 2-1.
Martin O'Neill's Irish will welcome the Americans just four days after their Euro 2016 qualifier in Scotland. They open their campaign in Tbilisi against Georgia on September 7.
