Soccer Betting

Now that the United States Mens National Soccer Team is in Brazil for a training session to prepare the team for the World Cup Tournament that begins in June 2014, and on the 14th of January 2014.  Coach Jurgen Klinsmann talked with reporters during a press conference.

The USA Coach Klinsmann said he is taking the opportunity to give his American players a chance to become familiar with Brazil before the World Cup Event by the team having a 12 day camp for training that began on Tuesday, January 14th and ends on the 25th of January 2014.  The team’s 1st training session was at the training center of Sao Paulo Football Club. The USA team with 26 players on the roster, with the majority of the players from the MLS are the 1st of the 32 nations who will play in the World Cup to travel to Brazil.  The Coach says this gives the players a great chance to learn more about what to expect in Brazil.  This will also give soccer fans who plan to Bet on the World Cup review the training in Brazil and compare the World Cup Odds as the teams advance to the opening games.

The training camp gives the players a chance to get to know the hotel where they will be staying at, the stadiums where the games will be played a get a feeling for the Host country Brazil and the people of Brazil.  Klinsman stated that this trip was for the players to experience the social things and at the same time on the technical side there are many things they can achieve,  and a lot to experience on the logistical and organizational makeup of the USA National team. He would also like his team members to start learning Portuguese the language of Brazil so the team members will know some of the basic words for communicating when they return for the World Cup in June.

As mention earlier the USA National team will remain in training in Brazil through the 25th of January at which time they will return to the United States as they have an exhibition game with South Korea on the 1st of February in Carson, California where the team also started the 11th annual training camp the week before the team went to Brazil for a training.

The American team consists primarily of U.S. – MLS based players, most of who assisted in the USA Menes team qualifying for the 7th consecutive World Cup.  Amongst the players are Star midfielder Landon Donovan, defender Omar Gonzalez, forward Eddie Johnson and midfielder Graham Zusi. On the trip to Brazil more players get an opportunity to make the final 23, as the team is not bringing the European based players to Brazil.

The USA National team is preparing for its first game on June 16th, the six days later they play Portugal and Ronaldo and the final game of the round is on the 26th of June against Germany.
