USMNT to hold January camp, eyeing friendly

By IVES GALARCEP

CARSON, Calif.–The U.S. Men’s National Team will hold a training camp in January ahead of the Feb. 6th World Cup qualifier against Honduras, Jurgen Klinsmann revealed on Friday.

A 23-player camp will convene here from Jan. 14th to Jan. 31st, and U.S. Soccer is working to try and organize a friendly on Jan. 30th, though that is still in the planning stages.

The camp, which will run in the second half of January, will consist of a mix of established veteran players as well as some young prospects, mostly from MLS with a mix of some Scandinavian-based players. Klinsmann mentioned that Rapid Vienna forward Terrence Boyd could potentially be part of the group.

Klinsmann didn’t have any details on a potential opponent for the friendly, but pointed out that most CONCACAF teams will be taking part in Copa Caribe and the UNCAF Cup in January. That would make it a good bet that the Americans will face a European opponent like Sweden or Denmark, which have domestic leagues on winter break.

What do you think of the news? Glad to see the January camp make a return? Who are you hoping gets a look?
