The United States has two friendlies this month to continue their preparations for the World Cup in Brazil next Summer. Those friendlies against Scotland and Austria will have a little Rave Green with them. Jurgen Klinsmann tapped Clint Dempsey, Brad Evans and Eddie Johnson as three of the 23 that will travel to Europe.

All three will leave today to head to Scotland today. That first match is on ESPN2 at Noon on Friday. The Austria friendly is also televised. The November 19th 11:45 AM match is on NBC Sports Network. Between the three Seattle Sounders players they have 12 goals on the year with the USA.

MLS sides send only seven total players and none of the remaining MLS Cup contenders lost a man to a call. No team sends as many as Seattle.
