USA coach Jurgen Klinsmann has named an impressive squad for their upcoming friendlies and World Cup qualifying programme.
Klinsmann says he's excited about the squad he's assembled.
â€śWe are very excited about the group we have put together,â€ť said Klinsmann. â€śThe players understand more how weâ€™re working, what weâ€™re looking for, the way we want to play and the way we want to challenge big nations eye-to-eye. As we go into this stretch of two friendly games against Belgium and Germany and three big World Cup Qualifiers, we want to see more consistent performances. There is a huge opportunity to pick up a lot of points and put ourselves in a good position to qualify for Brazil.â€ť
