Eddie Johnson, Brad Evans start for USMNT in a scoreless tie against Scotland

There wasn’t much to speak of in Friday’s scoreless tie between the U.S. men’s national team and Scotland.

Both Eddie Johnson and Brad Evans started, playing 62 and 72 minutes, respectively, in the less-than-thrilling exhibition, and neither received high marks from national outlets reacting to the game (e.g. MLSsoccer.com, ESPN.com). Clint Dempsey wasn’t available after suffering a calf injury during practice earlier in the week.

The lone excitement for the U.S. seemed to come from Aron Johansson and Brek Shea, a couple second-half substitutes who brought some late life to the game.

The U.S. next plays Austria on Tuesday.

Elsewhere in the soccer world, there were the first legs to four UEFA World Cup qualifying playoffs. Here were those results, with the home team’s score first:

Iceland 0-0 Croatia
Ukraine 2-0 France
Portugal 1-0 Sweden
Greece 3-1 Romania
