Report: Germany planning USA friendly in May

When Jurgen Klinsmann was hired as U.S. Men’s National Team head coach, it seemed only a matter of time before he would schedule a friendly against the other national team he used to coach, Germany.

That friendly is in the works, and if the German Federation can get full approval from the German Bundesliga, Germany will play the U.S. in late May. (UPDATE-At present, none of the reports out of Germany about the friendly have identified a location for the friendly, so at this point it is unclear where the match would be played.)

The friendly would take place before the United States plays a trio of World Cup qualifiers, and could mark the first game against Germany for German-born national team players like Jermaine Jones, Fabian Johnson, Danny Williams and Timmy Chandler.

What do you think of the prospects of a USA-Germany friendly? Like the idea of facing an opponent that tough before the trio of June World Cup qualifiers?
