U.S. to play Nov. 15 friendly vs. Scotland
GLASGOW, Scotland -- The United States will play a friendly against Scotland in Glasgow as the national team prepares for the 2014 World Cup.
The match will be staged at Hampden Park on Nov. 15.
It will be the seventh meeting between the countries, with the U.S. winning their last game 5-1 last year.

"It's a huge opportunity for the players, and we are excited to play against a team and in a venue that has so much tradition and history in football."
The Scottish Football Association also said they hope to announce plans for an away friendly, scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 19.Information from The Associated Press and Press Association was used in this report.
