The U.S. women's national team will open its 2014 schedule with a match against Canada.

The game on Jan. 31 will be held at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas, home to FC Dallas of the MLS.

U.S. coach Tom Sermanni says games with Canada are ''always highly competitive'' and it is ''an excellent first match in a year that will end with World Cup qualifying.''

The exhibition will feature two prolific goal scorers - Abby Wambach has a record 163 international goals, while Christine Sinclair of Canada has 146.

This year, the U.S. beat Canada 3-0 at BMO Field in Toronto. The Americans won 4-3 in overtime in the semifinal of the 2012 London Olympics.

The January match will be broadcast on FOX Sports 1.
