[USA MEN]U.S. national team head coach Jurgen Klinsmann will take all 26 players called into the January camp on the 12-day trip to Sao Paulo, where the team will train at Sao Paulo FC's facilities, its World Cup base, and play two closed-door scrimmages. He had earlier said he'd cut three players whom he might look at ahead upon the team's return to the National Training Center for the final week of the January camp.

"We have been extremely pleased with the performance of the group in the first week," said Klinsmann. "The players came in very fit and have done really well in training. Therefore, we believe they have all earned a chance to go to Brazil for these next 12 days. We are excited about getting down to Sao Paulo and continuing the work. This is a huge opportunity to get to know our environment for the World Cup."

The camp will end Feb. 1 with a match against South Korea in Carson at the StubHub Center. More than 18,000 tickets have already been sold for the game.

    Surprises me, but when I look down this list I see a team that might have qualified in ConCaCaf for WC2014. But still lacks a Claudio Reyna, or even a Tab Ramos in the middle. Add such a player to our current mix and we might start to have game. Hard to forgive Johnny Evans for that tackle on Stu Holden -- he was our best hope for someone who could calmly see and feel the game, with the ball on his feet, and then make the creative pass that changes everything. I'm going to order my grandkids some DVDs of Messi. Until a generation grows up in this country with that love affair between the ball and their feet, we're just gonna be another run and gun bunch of cowboys.
