CHICAGO (AP) The United States has started turning its attention toward the 2022 World Cup, announcing an exhibition at Portugal on Nov. 14.

The game was finalized Monday, six days after the Americans' stunning 2-1 loss at Trinidad and Tobago eliminated them from the 2018 World Cup field and ended their streak of appearances at seven.

Coach Bruce Arena quit Friday, and the U.S. Soccer Federation said it will determine an interim replacement "in the coming days."
