As the World Cup nears, USMNT searching for answers
It’s time to get to work for the U.S. Men’s National Team, as training is underway at Stanford University as Jurgen Klinsmann starts his final preparation for the team he will take to Brazil this summer for the 2014 World Cup.
Klinsmann has until June 2 to select the 23 players who will make up the American team that will take the pitch against Ghana on June 16 in the opening match of group play.
And with just nine players in camp who were on the World Cup team in 2010, Klinsmann needs to figure out if he can hold a spot for an experienced player who knows the demands of the World Cup but may be on the downside of their career, Landon Donovan, for example; or should he rely on some talented new blood that may or may not be ready for the pressure of facing Ghana, Portugal and Germany?
