[SCOTLAND-USA] With a win or tie Friday against Scotland, the USA can be assured of finishing with its best record in a season (more than one game) in the history of the national team program.

.810
The USA enters Friday's game with a 16-3-2 record in 2013 for a winning percentage of .810. With at least a draw against Scotland or Austria, the USA will set a record for the best winning percentage in a season (more than one game). The current record is .750 set in 2005 and 2012.

4.
The USA is unbeaten in its last four games against Scotland (two wins and two ties) after losing the first three meetings. Its longest active unbeaten streak against a European team is five games against Poland.

5
Only five of the 17 players who played in the 5-1 win over Scotland in Jacksonville are with the national team in Glasgow: Tim Howard, Geoff Cameron, Michael Bradley, Jermaine Jones and Terrence Boyd. Steve Cherundolo, Carlos Bocanegra and Oguchi Onyewu, all veterans of the 2006 and 2010 World Cups, played in the big win but would now be considered long shots to make the 2014 World Cup team.

65.
Eric Lichaj is the only player in camp who has not played for Jurgen Klinsmann. The Nottingham Forest defender, who earned eight caps under Bob Bradley, would be the 65th player Klinsmann has used in 43 games if he plays against Scotland.
