AMSTERDAM – The absence of hit men Jozy Altidore and Clint Dempsey should be seen as a chance to shine for those attackers left on board for this friendly road trip to Europe, says US men's national team manager Jurgen Klinsmann.
AMSTERDAM – Per usual, US boss Jurgen Klinsmann is hoping to see some development from a squad heavily populated with young players when a two-game friendly swing against a pair of European powers begins Friday away to the Netherlands (2:30 pm ET, ESPN2, UniMás).
However, that concept now comes off as a given, and not as any specific ambition to discuss.
The incredible year continues for Stanford University sophomore and Seattle Sounders academy product Jordan Morris.
Having scored in his first start for the US national team on April 15 in a win over Mexico, the 20-year-old has now joined the US squad preparing for friendlies against the Netherlands (Friday, 3pm ET, ESPN2, WatchESPN, UniMás, UDN) and Germany (June 10, 2:45pm ET, FOX Sports 1, UniMás, UDN), according to a Tweet posted by US Soccer on Wednesday morning.
It’s getting easier and easier to figure out Jurgen Klinsmann these days.
Jermaine Jones will not get a chance to suit up for the USMNT in the country of his birth. Not this month, anyway.
Brad Guzan may have lost his role as a starter for English Premier League club Aston Villa, but he'll still be the USMNT's No. 1 at this summer's Gold Cup according to manager Jurgen Klinsmann.
Jurgen Klinsmann and U.S. Soccer on Sunday announced a 22-man USMNT roster for a pair of friendlies against Germany and the Netherlands in early June. Included on the roster are nine players from MLS, one from NASL, nine based in Europe and three from Liga MX teams.
The BBVA Compass Dynamo Charities Cup between the Houston Dynamo and England's Manchester City FC has been canceled, the club announced on Thursday.
