A bunch of different things to check out today.
Apparently all the cool kids are going out on training stints with various teams across Europe. Omar Salgado will be at Fulham for two weeks. According to his agent, Juan Agudelo will be in Germany with VfB Stuttgart. Kyle Berckerman and Robbie Rogers will also be in Germany, but with Kaiserslautern. And also according to that last link, U-23er Perry Kitchen will be at SC Freiburg.
Jurgen Klinsmann speaks and the players listen.
Staying with the USMNT….I tweeted this on Monday, but there are some rumors that the Camp Cupcake could be headed down to Panama for a game in January. I also just read that a Galavision announcer said during the US-Slovenia game that the US will play Guatemala in Seattle as well as another unknown opponent at an unknown stadium during that same time period (possibly the Panama match?). But these are just internet rumors at this point.
Some last few reads with the U-23 team. Claudio Reyna talks about the youth program, Anthony Brooks gives us a recap of the recent camp in Germany and Conor Doyle also talks about some camp stuff.
Some other odds and ends.
Michael Parkhurst has signed a year extension with FC Nordsjælland.
Jose Torres is close to returning to the field after missing some time with an operation to his left foot.
And finally, CONCACAF has released the 2014 World Cup qualifying schedule. The US starts things off on Friday, June 8, 2012 against Antigua & Barbuda (that is one team, not two teams, as that would be tough playing 11 vs. 22).
