US Soccer today announced that the US national team will host Scotland for a friendly on May 26 in Jacksonville and will open World Cup Qualifying against Antigua and Barbuda in Tampa.
The United States national team has faced Scotland six times and holds a record of 1-3-2. The teams last played in 2005 in Glasgow where Josh Wolff scored a penalty en route to a 1-1 draw.
The game against Scotland will take place just four days before the United States will face off against Brazil in Maryland on May 30.
The United States has never faced Antigua and Barbuda before and the game will serve as an opportunity to start World Cup qualifying on a winning note. The two teams are drawn into Group A along with Jamaica and Guatemala.
