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. |

|It's time for FIFA to move out of the Alps|
It has occurred to me at regular intervals during the past decades that one of the problems that entangle FIFA is this: its location. Switzerland. Is that a good place to be for an organization in
charge of a sport that can lay claim to being the most global activity that the world has ever known?

|"I respect the manager for saying that. Managers and players should be emotional after defeats at times. There's an all-around spirit in the camp and I don't see a problem at all. You'll have to ask
