CARSON, Calif. – Given the danger that South Korea posed on a number of occasions Saturday afternoon at StubHub Center, US national team Jurgen Klinsmann believed his squad passed its first test of 2014.

Whether they completely aced that test was up for debate, but the US capped their three-and-a-half-week camp in successful fashion, and Klinsmann did not have any complaints following the 2-0 victory in front of a sell-out crowd.

The US national team emerged from a shaky first half with a lead and made it stand up in a 2-0 friendly win over a second-string South Korea side on Saturday afternoon in Carson, Calif.

With both rosters largely confined to domestic-based players, the hosts generally carried play without ever dominating.
