US MNT to play Scotland next month

Bruce Arena and company will head to Glasgow on November 12th to take on Scotland. Since this match falls the day before the MLS Cup and it is in Europe, Bruce is sure to use it to test out some of the European based Americans. Goal.com is reporting that there is a chance that Giuseppe Rossi will get an invite to play on the American side. Rossi was born in New Jersey but played his Under-19 games with Italy. If he joins up with the Bruce, this would be a very big development.

A bit of history, these two sides have not played each other on Scottish soil since August 30, 1952. On that date Scotland trashed the US 6-0. Their most recent meeting was in Washington, DC on May 30, 1998 when the two sides were in final prep for the 1998 World Cup. That game ending in a 0-0 tie.

Since this game will be on a Saturday, I’m guessing none of the ESPN channels will carry it live. However, we will be able to watch the MatchTracker over at UsSoccer.com.
