USA Vs. Scotland: Lineups

The first of three United States men's national team friendlies before a set of two World Cup qualifiers gets underway in Florida on Saturday night. Even though he's without a couple of players who are recovering from slight injuries -- Jozy Altidore and Clint Dempsey -- Jurgen Klinsmann will get an opportunity to look at close to his first team against Scotland. The lineup he's selected is an odd one and it'll be interesting to see how it looks in practice. Klinsmann was always going to have to play someone out of position with the team's lack of wide players and Dempsey, but he's taken this to extremes with his lineup. Four true central midfield players are in the first XI.

United States lineup (4-3-2-1): Howard; Johnson, Bocanegra, Cameron, Cherundolo; Jones, Edu, Bradley; Torres, Donovan; Boyd

Scotland lineup (4-3-3): McGregor; Bardsley, Caldwell, Webster, Mulgrew; Brown, McArthur, Bannan; Phillips, Miller, Maloney

Kickoff is at 8:00 p.m. ET from EverBank Field in Jacksonville, Florida. You can catch the game on either NBC Sports Network or Galavision in the United States.
