The U.S. women’s national team will travel to Portugal and Scotland next month for a pair of friendlies, U.S. Soccer announced Tuesday. They’ll be the first road games for the U.S. since June 2017 in Sweden and Norway.
The United States will face Portugal on Nov. 8 at Estadio António Coimbra da Mota in Estoril (1 p.m. ET, ESPN2) and then Scotland on Nov. 13 at The Simple Digital Arena in Paisley (2 p.m. ET, FS1 & UDN).
The United States and Scotland are both qualified for the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup. The U.S. had originally scheduled games in the Netherlands and Switzerland, but both teams will now be meeting in November in the play-off for UEFA’s final spot in the World Cup.
Also on Tuesday, Scotland announced their roster for the game vs. the United States. It will feature Utah Royals FC defender Rachel Corsie — but will not feature former Seattle Reign FC midfielder and 2014 NWSL MVP Kim Little, who suffered a broken fibula earlier this month.
