The U.S. Men’s National Team roster was announced Thursday and chances are there are some names you haven’t heard. Coach Jurgen Klinsmann explained that the new World Cup cycle means he wants to look at new players, including some young players that are relatively unknown amongst fans.
Meanwhile, SBI’s Ives Galarcep takes a look at the uncapped American players who may warrant a look from Klinsmann during the experimental phase of the new World Cup cycle.
And it looks like Sepp Blatter isn’t losing his post as FIFA’s president anytime soon. UEFA president Michael Platini told reporters Thursday he will not campaign against Blatter for the presidency, meaning Blatter will likely coast to a fifth term.
