The USMNT will travel across the pond to Hampden Park in Glasgow where they will take on Scotland on November 15 during the international break, US Soccer officially announced today.

The match will be a chance for head coach Jurgen Klinsmann to get a good look at his players with the World Cup coming up.

“The game against Scotland is crucial for us because we have so few games between now and when we name the roster for the FIFA World Cup” said Klinsmann.

The United States defeated Scotland in their last meeting by a 5-1 scoreline in Jacksonville just a year and a half ago.  Landon Donovan grabbed himself a hat-trick, with Michael Bradley and Jermaine Jones rounding out the scoring for the USMNT

The Scottish have seriously improved since then, however. While they won’t be qualifying for the World Cup by any stretch, they do have some quality wins in group play, including a 1-0 win in Croatia back in June.

US Soccer also announced they are close to a deal with an unnamed country for a friendly during the same international break on November 19.

    Hampden Park is the home of which club?

    This needs to be our last trip across the Atlantic. We should only play in the Americas leading up to the tournament, and it would be a good idea (if possible) to play a game at a neutral site on one of the isles, preferably against another Euro qualifier.
