The U.S. Men's National Team opened Bruce Arena's second tenure as head coach with a spirted 0-0 draw against Serbia at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego. Forward Jozy Altidore earned his 100 th cap in the match, becoming the second youngest player in U.S. MNT history to hit the century mark at 27 years, 84 days.

Earning Budweiser Man of the Match honors in his first international start, Darlington Nagbe provided the best two chances of the first half for the U.S. In the 29th minute, Michael Bradley's penetrating pass found him on the left edge of the box where he cut back inside and curled his effort just wide of the right post. Nine minutes later, a quick counter attack saw Jozy Altidore hold up the ball for Jermaine Jones, who cleverly flicked into Nagbe's path. The midfielder entered the box and again cut back, bending his low shot just past the right post.
