KANSAS CITY – It looks like the usual doings for the United States team on the day before a match, with a mid-day press conference for the coach and then an evening practice at the stadium.
Jurgen Klinsmann just finished his 12:30 p.m. news conference at the team’s downtown Kansas City hotel. (I was there … tell you more about it later, although there was nothing truly revealing said. As an example, someone asked Klinsmann if there would be changes along the back line. Answer: “Possibly!”)
Later this afternoon, players will filter through a media mixed zone on their way to training and then go through their short, closed session.
Don’t expect anything truly revealing to come from any of that either. Then again, who knows. This is Klinsmann we are talking about. And if we have learned to expect anything during his 15 months in charge, it’s to expect the unexpected.
