STORY OF THE DAY!
Slim pickings for Klinsmann in Europe these days
by Paul Kennedy on Friday, Aug 29, 2014 12:59 AM EDT
[USA MEN] In a game that is designed to be a test for his European-based players, U.S. national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann called in just 12 players (out of 22) from first division European clubs for Wednesday's game against the Czech Republic in Prague -- and only three of them started in league play last weekend. The slim pickings underscore how much the sphere of influence on the national team has switched from Europe to MLS. Here are four takeaways on Klinsmann's first roster of his second cycle.

Where others fear to tread: Soccer Moms sue FIFA

"We have watched Jordan through our youth national teams and in the Development Academy for the last couple of years, and he is a very promising player. We saw him during our two weeks at Stanford for the World Cup preparation camp, and also from his play with U-23 team in the Bahamas, and we felt like this was a good opportunity to introduce him to the Senior Team."

-- U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann on calling in Stanford University sophomore Jordan Morris for Wednesday's game against the Czech Republic. Morris, who would be the first collegian to play for the U.S. national team in nearly two decades, came out of the Seattle Sounders' academy program.(USSoccer.com)
