Scotland have settled themselves in Toronto and will take to the pitch at BMO Field on Saturday to battle Canada in what promises to be the most exciting of this year's major North American internationals.

Canada's only victory over Scotland also came at home in 2002, so the 16th-ranked Canadians will have high hopes of an upset, as they take on the eighth-ranked Scottish in front of a passionate home crowd.

Canadian coach Kieran Crowley has made two changes from the side that lost to Japan last Saturday in Vancouver, while new Scotland head coach Vern Cotter has made four changes from the team that bested the U.S. last weekend in Texas.

We'll have all of the scoring updates and analysis for you, live from the BMO Field press box, here on Bleacher Report.
