Four U.S. national team players will have a chance to add some silverware to their collections this weekend before taking part in upcoming World Cup qualifiers.

Tim Howard, Maurice Edu, DaMarcus Beasley and Jose Francisco Torres will all have a chance to win trophies with their respective clubs teams. Howard leads the way as he mans the goal for Everton in the FA Cup final against Chelsea (10am, Fox Soccer Channel). Howard will attempt to add a second FA Cup winner's medal to his resume while Edu and Beasley will see their Glasgow Rangers face Falkirk in the Scottish Cup final. Edu did not train this week due to a thigh injury so his status is in serious question. Beasley has not figured into Rangers plans lately so he's unlikely to dress.

And then there is Torres, who will lead Pachuca into the second leg of its Mexican League Championship series against UNAM Pumas on Sunday (8pm, Telemundo). Pumas won the first leg, 1-0, but Pachuca will still be favored to win it all at home.

Will you be making time to watch the Americans bring home the hardware? Think Howard can duplicate his FA Cup semifinal heroics in the final? Do you see Torres scoring a game-winner for Pachuca?
