U.S. Men’s national Team head coach Jurgen Klinsmann took to Twitter on Monday for a live Q&A on the U.S. Soccer Twitter account, and among other tidbits, revealed some very encouraging injury updates on some national team veterans.

Klinsmann revealed that both Clint Dempsey and Steve Cherundolo are back in training with their respective teams, and stated that Dempsey should be fine for World Cup qualifiers later this month.

The injury updates should offer a sense of relief for U.S. fans after a rash of injuries looked to be putting the national team’s chances of earning points in this month’s World Cup qualifiers in jeopardy.

With Dempsey and Johnson expected back, the U.S. receives a major boost. The team is still facing the absences of Tim Howard, Edgar Castillo and Steve Cherundolo, but Brad Guzan and Timmy Chandler are expected to step in and start.

What do you think of this development? Feeling better about the USMNT’s chances? Encouraged by Klinsmann’s comments?
