Klinsmann: 'This is about proving a point'
| The countdown to the Oct. 10 winner-take-all match against Mexico at the Rose Bowl began in earnest with Jurgen Klinsmann's selection of players for
friendlies against Peru and Brazil. There was heavy turnover with the return of Tim Howard and Geoff Cameron, who
have not played in 2015, and Matt Besler and Jermaine Jones, who have not played since February. Out for the Peru
game at least are nine players who started at the 2015 Gold Cup. |

|WHAT THEY'RE SAYING|
|"We're coaches, and we're all ambassadors for MLS and want the game to grow, and I thought the game was very poorly managed by the official. And he's an experienced guy, but he seemed to be
