Yes, sure, no differences whatsoever internally. You can use the following guide as a reference, although it’s for the following year model, screws and connectors are about the same:

@brunobvm - The US keyboard is a very different from the ISO keyboards. So you can't just replace the keyboard subassembly you need to replace the full uppercase.

Unless your keyboard is messed up I would just replace the keycaps and go into the keyboard preferences to alter the driver to the U. S. ISO source.

Here's the source of the keycaps TheBookYard UK

That’s a wonderful solution, how couldn’t I think about it?

I even have an old MacBook Pro that I can remove the keys.

Thanks a lot.
