Coverage of the match begins Saturday at10 p.m. ET on FS1. The Americans will host Venezuela at the Rio Tinto Stadium, home of MLS side Real Salt Lake in Sandy, Utah.
The match serves as the USMNT's only practice run ahead of their upcoming World Cup qualifying matches in the Hex against Trinidad & Tobago on June 8 and Mexico on June 11.
With 56 goals for the United States, Clint Dempsey sits on the cusp of history. He can match -- or break -- Landon Donovan's record of 57 goals if he gets on the scoresheet against Venezuela.
When asked about hitting the milestone, Deuce was his usual focused self, saying, "It would be great to break any record, but most importantly it’d be even better to qualify for the World Cup."
The tune-up against Venezuela is an important one, as the U.S. is in danger of failing to qualify for the World Cup. The Yanks opened the Hex with a pair of losses, but bounced back under the return of Bruce Arena to the helm. One of the biggest questions heading into the stretch is what the Americans will do with their midfield.
We'll get a pretty good idea what Arena has in mind when the USMNT plays Venezuela on FS1 Saturday night. Be sure not to miss it!
