After wrapping up World Cup qualifying, the U.S. men will travel to Scotland for a Nov. 15 exhibition at Hampden Park in Glasgow.

The match is ''crucial,'' U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann says, because there aren't many opportunities to see his team before rosters are due for next year's World Cup in Brazil. Following the final two qualifiers next month, there are only two more international fixture dates this year - Nov. 15 and 19. A site and opponent for a Nov. 19 exhibition are expected to be announced soon.

Club teams are required to release their players for games on FIFA's international fixture dates, meaning Klinsmann will have access to his entire team.

The Americans secured their spot in Brazil with a 2-0 victory over archrival Mexico on Tuesday night.
