Hoffenheim's Johnson should be available for USA - Klinsmann

Hoffenheim defender Fabian Johnson is expected to be fit for the USA as they embark on vital World Cup qualifiers later in March.

The 25-year old left-back missed his side's win over Greuther Furth on the weekend with a hip problem but according to Juergen Klinsmann should be available when the US meet Costa Rica in Denver on March 22 and Mexico on March 26.

"Yes. He should be good to join us in Denver," Klinsmann posted on Twitter via the US Soccer page when quizzed on the fitness of Johnson by a fan.

German-born Johnson made his international debut for the USA on November 2011 and has since made 11 appearances for the country.
