The U.S. and Peru last met on Feb. 16, 2000, in Miami. The USA prevailed by a 1-0 score line, improving its all-time record against the South American nation to 2-2-1.

At this summer’s Copa America, the Peruvians finished in third place, after falling to tournament champion Chile 2-1 in the semifinal.

RFK Stadium, the home of D.C. United for 20 seasons, will host the MNT for a record 23rd time. In the previous 22 matches, the United States has posted a 14-3-5 record with a 51-22 advantage in scoring and an average attendance of 33,876 fans.

The MNT owns an eight-game unbeaten streak at RFK Stadium (7-0-1) and last played in the nation’s capital in June 2013, defeating the world’s No. 2-ranked team Germany, 4-3, in front of 47,359 fans in the Centennial Celebration game in honor of U.S. Soccer’s 100-year anniversary. The streak also includes a 2-0 win over Jamaica in the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup semifinals, a 2-2 draw with Costa Rica that clinched first place in CONCACAF qualifying for the 2010 FIFA World Cup, and a 6-1 win over Cuba that clinched a berth in the final round qualifying for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. The last U.S. loss came in 2001, a 3-2 defeat to Honduras in front of 54,282 fans.

The U.S. is coming off a 2-1 victory against Honduras to open the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup. The title defense continues July 10 when they face Haiti at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts. Kickoff is set for 8:30 PM ET, and the match will be broadcast live on FOX Sports 1 and UniMás.
