Chicago, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - The U.S. men's national team will kick off its 2014 World Cup preparations with a friendly against the Korea Republic at the StubHub Center on Feb. 1., U.S. Soccer announced on Monday.

"As a team that has qualified for Brazil, the Korea Republic will be another great benchmark for us," U.S. head coach Jurgen Klinsmann said in a statement. "They bring a different style of play than we have seen in the last two years, and that gives us a chance to grow."

It will be the first time the two nations have met on the pitch since a 1-1 draw during the 2002 World Cup. Overall, the U.S. have a 1-3-2 record vs. Korea Republic.

StubHub Center, home of MLS's Los Angeles Galaxy, will be the site of the USA's first match of the year for the seventh time since 2004. The U.S. have a 3-1-2 record in those games.
