International Challenge Match
USA v Scotland
Saturday, 26 May 2012, kick-off 8:00 p.m. ET
EverBank Field, Jacksonville, Florida

The Scottish FA can today confirm that Scotland will continue preparations for the FIFA World Cup 2014 Qualifiers with a match against the USA in Jacksonville, Florida, on Saturday 26 May.


Craig Levein and his squad will end a training camp in the USA with a match against Jurgen Klinsmann’s side at the home of NFL team Jacksonville Jaguars.


This will be the first time that the two sides have met on US soil for 14 years. Both nations were preparing for the 1998 World Cup when they recorded a 0-0 draw in Washington on 30 May 1998.


The next meeting at Hampden on 12 November 2005 also ended in a draw. Josh Wolff put the USA ahead with an early penalty, with Andy Webster levelling for Scotland.


Scotland National Coach, Craig Levein, said:


"Following the match against Slovenia in February, this provides another opportunity to get the group together ahead of the World Cup 2014 Qualifiers in September.


"We will have an extended period together in May, with a training camp in the USA prior to the match on the 26th, which is very important as we prepare for the qualifiers.


"We’re all looking forward to this match, which gives us a chance to test ourselves against a nation that is emerging as one of the top sides in world football."


The match will be broadcast live in the USA on NBC Sports Network. We will announce any deal struck by US Soccer to broadcast the match in the UK in due course
