Handful of MLS players set to train with German clubs
Image
Beckerman, Rogers, Agudelo, Kitchen schedule offseason stints


Real Salt Lake and US national team midfielder Kyle Beckerman is one of them. The veteran is headed to Germany to train with Kaiserslautern.

“In an effort to have USMNT players stay more fit during the MLS offseason, Coach Klinsmann arranged for me to train at FC Kaiserslautern for a few weeks,” Beckerman said via the RSL press office on Wednesday. “Although I'm not sure exactly how long I'll be training, the plan was to train for a few weeks. So far we have been treated very well and I'm looking forward to this new experience.”

Agudelo’s former U-20 and current U-23 teammate Perry Kitchen of D.C. United is also headed across the Atlantic, slated to train with FC Freiburg. Kitchen and Agudelo are currently wrapping up a U-23 training camp in Germany under head coach Caleb Porter.

US confirms January friendlies vs. Venezuela, Panama
Klinsmann & Co. to host Venezuela, travel to Panama in January

Image

US Soccer on Thursday confirmed the long-rumored USMNT matches scheduled for January 2012. The first match features Venezuela on January 21 in Glendale, Ariz., followed by a road match against Panama in Panama City four days later.

The two games will wrap up Jurgen Klinsmann’s first January camp at the helm of the US national team. The traditional two-week training camp gathers many MLS-based players since the matches coincide with the MLS offseason and do not fall on FIFA fixture dates.

Details of the charity action are not yet known, but one source indicated that US coach Jurgen Klinsmann accepted a specific invitation for his team to take part in the event.

Columbus' Bliss to assist US Under-20 coaching staff
Crew TD will help Ramos prep squad during Ft. Lauderdale camp

Image

Columbus Crew technical director Brian Bliss will assist head coach Tab Ramos during the US Under-20 national team's camp, US Soccer confirmed on Wednesday. The U-20s are spending a week in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., in preparation for CONCACAF qualifying for the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Turkey.

Bliss hasn't been named to the staff, said a USSF spokesman, but will serve as a guest assistant to Ramos for a few days ahead of the MLS Combine, which starts Friday and runs through Jan. 11. Bliss is still fulfilling his role as Crew TD and will rejoin Columbus' coaching staff at the Combine.

The United States U-23 men's national soccer team, also known as the United States Men's Olympic Soccer Team, is a youth soccer team operated under the auspices of U.S. Soccer. Its primary role is qualification into and competition at the quadriennial Olympic Football Tournament, the next of which is to be held during the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, England. The team's most recent major tournament was the tournament at the 2008 Summer Olympics, in which the United States team was eliminated in the first round group stage.

The roster can be augmented with three "overage" players, ostensibly possessing veteran experience, during Olympic competition, in accordance with FIFA regulations.

It seems US head coach Jurgen Klinsmann will get his second taste of the heated rivalry against Mexico in an exhibition match to be played this August. The venue? Estadio Azteca. Can Klinsmann finally lead the Americans through the humid, smoggy, and raucous atmosphere to their first-ever victory south of the border? (Goal.com - Jan. 14, 2012)

Recap:
Clark's late header gives US 1-0 win over Venezuela
Substitute makes no mistake in stoppage time for dramatic win

Image

GLENDALE, Ariz. – Time after time, chance after chance, the US national team pushed hard for a possible winning goal against Venezuela, only to be turned away.

Then, a foul put more time on the stoppage-time clock in the second half, and the US took advantage. Jermaine Jones’ corner kick found Ricardo Clark’s head, and Clark beat Venezuela goalkeeper Jose Morales in the eighth minute of extra time.

The final whistle sounded just seconds later, and the US celebrated a 1-0 victory before 22,403 at University of Phoenix Stadium.

US U-23s close January camp with win at Alajuelense
Image
Taylor's goal gives Olympic hopefuls a 1-0 victory in Costa Rica


The United States U-23 national team closed out the second leg of training camp ahead of Olympic qualifying on a high note, defeating an Alajuelense concoction of first-teamers and reserves 1-0 on Tuesday afternoon in Alajuela, Costa Rica.

Forward Tony Taylor was lone goal scorer, finding the net in the 39th minute after a good build-up from the young Americans.

“We pressured them and did everything we could to win,” Taylor told the Costa Rican club’s website after the match. “[Alajuelense] are a good team, they showed great touch.”

The victory was the first for the US U-23s throughout their January camp, which featured a 4-0 loss and a 1-1 tie in scrimmages against the US men’s national team, and a scoreless tie against the Saprissa reserves on Saturday.

The US U-23s begin CONCACAF Olympic qualifying play on March 22 against Cuba in Nashville, Tenn. They will then face Canada on March 24 and close out Group A competition against El Salvador on March 26.

The Americans must reach the final of the qualifying tournament – which includes Mexico, Honduras, Panama and Trinidad and Tobago in Group B – to participate in the Olympics.

Rumor Central:
Canada to host US in WCQ tuneup?

Image

The Canadian Soccer Association is set to make a few big announcements on Thursday, but who saw this one coming?

Rumors are that the CSA will not only announce the sites for Canada's World Cup Qualifying matches on Thursday, but it appears they'll also drop the news that Canada will host the US sometime in a friendly tuneup before the qualifiers. The US - who beat Canada in Detroit during the group stage of the CONCACAF Gold Cup last summer - have not played in Canada since a 3-0 win in Vancouver in 1997.

The Canucks lead the series 6-3-1 in matches played in Canada all-time, dating back to 1925. (CBC Sports - Canada to face US in World Cup qualifier tuneup http://www.cbc.ca/sports/soccer/opinion/2012/02/canada-to-face-us-in-world-cup-qualifer-tuneup.html)

US to face rivals Canada in Toronto friendly on June 3
Image

The match, which will be televised live in the US on NBC Sports Network at 7 pm ET, will also serve as the final tune-up for both squads ahead of the third round of CONCACAF qualifying for the 2014 World Cup.

“First of all, we are honored to be chosen to be part of Canada's Centenary celebration,” US head coach Jurgen Klinsmann said in a statement. “This is exactly the type of challenge we are looking for as we grow the team and get ready for the start of World Cup qualifying. There is a great history in the rivalry, and Canada is a team we could see in the final round of qualifying. It's a win-win for everybody.”

Dempsey scores as US notch a huge upset win over Italy

Image

The US national team produced their first-ever win against Italy thanks to Clint Dempsey’s second-half strike in a 1-0 win at Stadio Luigi Ferraris in Genoa on Wednesday.

The pivotal moment came in the 55th minute when Fabian Johnson whipped in a teasing ball that Jozy Altidore laid off superbly for the on-rushing Dempsey, who drilled his shot hard and low past the despairing dive of Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon.

The win marks the first time the US have defeated Italy in 11 attempts since the nations first met 82 years ago. It also marks the first time Italy have lost in Genoa since 1924.
