It is Spain’s final tune-up before starting European Championship play on June 10, while the match is the second of three friendlies for the U.S. before the team begins World Cup qualifying on Sunday, June 15 at The Home Depot Center against Barbados.

Guzan made the most recent of his six appearances for the U.S. National Team playing the second half of a 2-0 loss against England in London on May 28.
