Socceroos coming to take on the Yanks?

According to Australian website The Age, the USMNT will host Australia later this year in either New York or Boston (probably Foxboro). FIFA has the following days set aside for International matches:
August 22nd (Friendly Date)
September 8th & 12th (Official Match Dates)

October 13th & 17th (Official Match Dates)

November 17th & 21st (Official Match Dates)

I seriously doubt that USSF would schedule a USMNT match for November 17th, with the MLS Cup taking place the next day. Along those same lines, I can't see the USSF scheduling a Friendly on August 22nd either, as it is in the middle of the MLS season and not the best weather conditions to bring in a foreign side.

So take your pick for which of the other five dates the USSF and Australian FA are looking at. Hopefully the USSF uses at least one of the Official Match Date pairings for a trip abroad, maybe against Switzerland & Ivory Coast?
