The U.S. national team will play an exhibition soccer match against 10th-ranked Egypt in Cairo on Feb. 9.

The game announced Monday will be a rematch of the nations' meeting at the 2009 Confederations Cup, when the Americans beat the Pharoahs 3-0 on goals by Charlie Davies, Michael Bradley and Clint Dempsey.

The 24th-ranked U.S. opens its 2011 schedule against Chile on Jan. 22 at Carson, Calif. The Americans also have been negotiating to host Argentina in March as they prepare for the CONCACAF Gold Cup in June.
