United States camp roster to drop on Sunday, plus other news bits on Jurgen Klinsmann’s national team
Jan 4, 2013, 12:50 PM EDT
Developments are coming apace now after a relatively slow period for the U.S. national team, last heard from substantially during that November draw in Russia.
Just the other day, U.S. Soccer announced the next public training session, set for Jan. 28 in Houston, a day before the United States meets Canada at BBVA Compass Stadium in South Texas.
Today comes news that Klinsmann (pictured) will unveil his next training camp roster Sunday, a day before the annual January U.S. national team camp begins at the Home Depot Center outside Los Angeles. The camp roster (mostly MLS men and talent from the Scandinavian leagues now on break) will be announced during Fox Soccer Channel’s Goals on Sunday show, around 1 p.m. ET.
One apparent difference in this camp, compared to past January camps, will be its revealing nature into Klinsmann’s thinking. Word is that Klinsmann’s selections will fairly accurately reflect the next men in line along the staff’s depth chart (after the obvious choices playing in England, Germany, Spain and Italy, who are busy with clubs in those lands and will not be part of the camp).
That’s different than most January camps, which are frequently used to introduce younger athletes to a higher, international level. So, the men reporting for this one (with a week of fitness before the bulk of the “soccer” work commences) arrive with a certain standing in the eyes of the staff, already.
Finally, there is no encouraging word to offer on the TV situation for U.S. vs. Honduras, coming up in a month.
The national team’s quest to qualify for World Cup 2014 begins Feb. 6 in Honduras. The team will be in Florida in less than a month, prepping for departure into Central America.
Remember, the rights to road games for the United States now belong to beIN Sport, which continues to be a rumor in many parts of the country. If your cable provider does not carry the beIN Sport … good luck!
