It appears that the U.S. men's national team will kick off its pre-World Cup qualifying friendly tour in the southeast.
According to reports out of Jacksonville, Fla., the U.S. men will host Scotland at EverBank Field — home of the NFL's Jacksonville Jaguars — on May 26.
A match in Jacksonville would mark the third time in less than a year that the U.S. national team will have played in Florida. The U.S. men played Panama in the Gold Cup in Tampa last June and returned to the Sunshine State to play Honduras in a friendly in Miami in October.
The reported friendly would be the first of three World Cup qualifying tune-up matches. U.S. Soccer has already confirmed friendlies against Brazil at FedEx Field in Landover, Md., on May 30 and against Canada at BMO Field in Toronto on June 3.
World Cup qualifying begins June 8 against Antigua and Barbuda at a to-be-named U.S. site.
