CHICAGO (AP) — The U.S. women's soccer team will play a second exhibition against Russia in a five-day span when it travels to Atlanta on Feb. 12.

The U.S. Soccer Federation announced Wednesday the game will be played at the Georgia Dome.

The Americans announced last week they will face the Russians on Feb. 8 in Boca Raton, Fla., the first meeting between the nations since a 5-1 U.S. win in September 2002.

The U.S. opens this year's schedule on Jan. 31 against Canada at Frisco, Texas.
