Both teams are just playing out the final minutes.

78th minute: 5-1
Scotland is just passing the ball around the midfield aimlessly now.
They are totally defeated and clearly just want to get the heck out of town…
Edgar Castillo replaces Fabian Johnson at fullback for the US.
Another substitution to report. Brad Guzan has replaced Tim Howard in the US goal.
70th minute: GOAL!
Jermaine Jones makes it 5-1 with a header!
It's getting ridiculous now.
Donovan—who else?—with the final ball.

Joe Corono comes on. He's making his international debut.
Jose Torres comes off.
More on the goal
It's Michael Bradley with the set-up again.
This time Bradley plays the final ball, and Donovan runs onto it in the box. He takes a touch and hits a perfect shot off the far post and into the net.
Outstanding night for Donovan and Team USA.
65th minute: GOAL!!!
Donovan completes his hat trick!

Triple sub for the US.
Kyle Beckerman, Herculez Gomez and Oguchi Onyewu come on. Carlos Bocanegra, Maurice Edu and Terrence Boyd head off.
63rd minute: 3-1
Now here's a great free kick chance for the US, just outside the Scotland box.
The crowd roars…
… but Bradley's shot slams off the wall.
More on the goal
Michael Bradley plays the ball out to Jermaine Jones on the right.
Jones crosses along the ground for Donovan, who's running into the box.
Donovan keeps his composure on the ball and strokes a simple shot into the far corner.
That was too easy. Great work from the US midfield—and, of course, Landon Donovan.
60th minute: GOAL!
Donovan again! This time it's a sweeping move.
59th minute: 2-1
More attacks from the US. Hard to keep up with them all.
Two subs for Scotland…
Again the Scottish perspective:
Common theme amongst those around me is 'when did the Americans get so good?' I've been saying it for so long. US are serious force.— Graham Ruthven (@grahamruthven) May 27, 2012

53rd minute: 2-1
I'm really impressed with the US midfield's attacking know-how tonight.
They're fast, accurate and dangerous.
This is a very promising development for US soccer. Way to go, Jurgen.
