El Tri will be returning to the Alamodome, where they most recently earned a 2-0 win over Curacao during the Gold Cup in July.

The friendly does not fall during a FIFA window, meaning the roster will likely only feature players from Liga MX and MLS.

It will mark the second match of a stateside swing for Bosnia & Herzegovina, which also will face the United States on Jan. 28 in Carson, California.

The two sides last met June 3, 2014, at Soldier Field in Chicago, with Bosnia & Herzegovina earning a 1-0 win.
