Men’s National Team head coach Jurgen Klinsmann has named the 23-player US Soccer Team Roster for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. All-time leading scorer Landon Donovan did not make it the team.
It is clear that coach Klinsmann is ready for a post-Donovan World Cup with younger players, like 18 year old Julian Green who will cover Donovan’s position. The U.S. will play three matches in its send-off series:
- Tuesday May 27, at Candlestick Park in San Francisco USA vs. Azerbaijan.
- Sunday June 1, at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey USA vs. Turkey.
- Saturday June 7, at EverBank Field in Jacksonville USA vs Nigeria.
All three matches will be broadcast live on ESPN2, WatchESPN, UniMas and ESPN Deportes Radio. Fans can also follow the games live on Twitter @USsoccer.
