Wednesday, August 31 2016 by SNTV
  • USA head coach Jurgen Klinsmann looked ahead to upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Saint Vincent and the Grenadines (September 2nd) and Group C leaders Trinidad and Tobago (6th Spetember).

    SOUNDBITE: (English) Jurgen Klinsmann, USA head coach:

    "Well, we definitely think that the group that got (us) fourth in the Copa America deserve a certain priority, you know, going into the next World Cup qualifiers, because they did tremendously well in the Copa America. It was an exciting tournament, great games, I think that the whole group learned a lot, you know, playing teams like Colombia, Ecuador, Argentina obviously, this is the big stage and so they deserve to come back and now confirm what they did in the tournament in these upcoming, very important, two World Cup qualifiers and therefore we are preparing these two games very seriously, with a lot of urgency, because we want to finish off our group, if possible, in first place. And therefore, this group of players, they get the chance to do that."

    SOUNDBITE: (English) Jurgen Klinsmann, USA head coach:

    "Our message to the players coming into this camp for the two World Cup qualifiers is very clear - to approach it with a lot, a lot of urgency. It's not easy to go into those Caribbean countries and get the results, so it's not going to be easy in St. Vincent, on a very difficult field in all (the) circumstances, the heat, whatever els you know, to hopefully get the goals as soon as possible, so we've got to be patient, but we have to play with a lot of urgency, being determined in our approach and that's how we're going to prepare (for) that game."
