Sao Paulo camp will help us assimilate - USA's Klinsmann
USA manager Juergen Klinsmann is expecting the January camp to help his squad and staff adapt to life in Brazil.
The US will spend two weeks in Sao Paulo this month to prepare for the summer's World Cup and Klinsmann suggests it provides a brilliant opportunity to come to terms with the environment they will experience during the prestigious tournament.
"Primarily we want to get the guys going and build their base for 2014 and we want them to have a jump start into this very exciting World Cup year," he told ussoccer.com.
"At the same time, it gives us the chance to train at the facility where we are going to train for the World Cup at FC Sao Paulo training ground, to stay at the hotel where we are going to stay.
"It's meant to connect ourselves with Brazil, connect ourselves with the people that work there, with the circumstances you're going to meet there and to get a real good feeling for how it's going to be in June.
"It's a tremendous advantage for us to do that trip. Therefore, we are going to focus on a lot of things in Sao Paulo off the field, not only on the field."
