The United States men’s national team plays their final warm-up game before the 2014 World Cup in Brazil on Sunday. They’re playing Nigeria at EverBank Field, home of the Jacksonville Jaguars in Florida.
They’re preparing for one of the most, if not the most, difficult group in the tournament with Germany, Portugal and Ghana. Portugal and Germany are favorites to contend for the World Cup title, and Ghana has eliminated the USMNT from the past two World Cups.
“It is one of the most difficult groups of the whole draw,” head coach Jurgen Klinsmann said back in December, according to Yahoo! Sports. “It couldn’t get any more difficult or any bigger, but that is what the World Cup is all about. We are looking forward to the challenge and we don’t see ourselves as any kind of outsiders. If you want to get into the top 10 or 12 teams in the world you have to beat these guys.”
In their final warm up game they play Nigeria, a team also headed to the World Cup and it will serve as a good barometer for how they’ll perform in the World Cup.
