TORRANCE, Calif. – Jurgen Klinsmann and his staff had specific objectives for the closed-door scrimmage on Tuesday against Mexican champions Club Tijuana, and the US national team head coach said he was pleased with what transpired.
Jurgen Klinsmann's roster for next week's friendly vs. Canada was pared by two on Tuesday, as San Jose fullback Steven Beitashour and Colorado forward Edson Buddle were shelved by injuries, US Soccer announced.
CARSON, Calif. — As next week's friendly with Canada nears, the US national team has shifted gears in its Southern California camp, with training sessions evolving from position-specific work to game-like situations and intense evaluations.
CARSON, Calif. – The fight would seem to be for No. 3 on the depth chart, behind Everton's Tim Howard and Aston Villa's Brad Guzan. But the approach the three goalkeepers in the US national team camp are taking is wholly different.
GUADALAJARA, Mexico – What was billed by Club Tijuana as a “special” day turns out to be nothing more than a scrimmage behind closed doors.

So where do we start?
OK, let’s all take a deep breath as we sift through what was likely the busiest day of the year so far in US domestic soccer.

And Farrell was understandably delighted to go first.
Philadelphia Union manager John Hackworth is happy that new acquisition defender Jeff Parke was called up to the US national team this week.
He’s just a little surprised that no other Union players will join Parke for the three-week camp that kicked off Monday at the Home Depot Center and culminates with a Jan. 29 friendly against Canada.
The US and Canadian men's national teams will square off in a friendly on Jan. 29 at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston, the federations of both countries announced on Monday.
