Glasgow, Scotland (SportsNetwork.com) - The United States men's national team was held to a 0-0 draw by Scotland at Hampden Park on Friday.
The U.S. was without a number of key players such as Landon Donovan, Clint Dempsey and Graham Zusi, which allowed head coach Jurgen Klinsmann to experiment with his tactics and test fringe players in new positions.
Sacha Kljestan was the primary beneficiary of such absences as his good form for Anderlecht earned him a start, but the Seton Hall University product failed to make a lasting impact on the match.
Aron Johansson replaced Kljestan in the 63rd minute and the United States began to place more pressure on David Marshall in the Scotland net, but the visitors were unable to take any of their scoring opportunities.
The United States will return to action on Tuesday with a friendly match against Austria at the Ernst Happel Stadium.
