    CHICAGO -- The United States will conclude its 2013 schedule with an international friendly against Austria in Vienna on November 19, the U.S. Soccer Federation announced Friday.  It will be just the third time the two countries have faced each other and first in more than 15 years.

    The match will be the second of a two-game, European tour that also includes an encounter at Scotland four days earlier.

    The U.S. and Austria last squared off on April 22, 1998, also in Vienna. Goals by Frankie Hejduk, Brian McBride and Claudio Reyna gave the Americans a 3-0 victory.

    The Austrians won their first meeting, 2-1, in the last group game for each at the 1990 World Cup finals.  A goal by forward Bruce Murray halved the deficit in the 83rd minute.  Current U.S. assistant coach Andreas Herzog played the full 90 minutes for Austria that day in Florence, Italy.

    The U.S., which qualified for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil after a 2-0 victory over Mexico on September 10, clinched the top spot in the CONCACAF Hexagonal with a 2-0 victory against Jamaica on Friday in Kansas City, Kansas.
