The United States’ Men’s National Team is hosting South Korea in Los Angeles for a world friendly in preparation of the World Cup. Manager Jurgen Klinsmann doesn’t feel like the squad is running out of time to prepare.
“I never feel like I’m running out of time,” Klinsmann said, via USsoccer.com. “You need timelines. Deadlines are a good thing. The first game is June 16. This is a great deadline. This is what you’re looking for. You adjust everything you do. If some things don’t work out or God forbid an injury happens to a key player or whatever, you make an adjustment and you make the best out of it. It’s no problem. The excitement just gets bigger because now you can see the end of it. You see the light at the end of the tunnel in terms of, we know a bit better what Brazil is about, we feel pretty well prepared, now we’re going to follow all the players on all their different club teams to see how they’re doing over the next couple of months and then we’ll make the calls for the roster. I think it’s more excitement growing.”
