The Scottish Football Association has confirmed that Scotland will play the United States in an international friendly in Florida in May.

Craig Levein's side will take on Jurgen Klinsmann's team in Jacksonville on Saturday, May 26, just one week after the Scottish Cup final.

The match will be played at EverBank Field, the home of NFL team the Jacksonville Jaguars, and will be preceded by a training camp.

And Levein is looking forward to the chance to spend some time with his players.

He explained: "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 countries last met in 2005 at Hampden when Andy Webster scored Scotland's goal in a 1-1 draw.
