    CHICAGO – United States head coach Jurgen Klinsmann announced Sunday that all 26 players called into the national team’s January camp will travel to Brazil, where the team will train January 13-25 as part of its World Cup prepartations.

    Klinsmann had considered trimming the roster to 23 players, but after a productive week of training determined that the full group would make the trip.

    "We have been extremely pleased with the performance of the group in the first week," said Klinsmann.  "The players came in very fit and have done really well in training.  Therefore, we believe they have all earned a chance to go to Brazil for these next 12 days. 

    “We are excited about getting down to Sao Paulo and continuing the work. This is a huge opportunity to get to know our environment for the World Cup."

    The team will be based at the training site of Sao Paulo FC, one of the premier facilities in Brazil and the host of the U.S. base camp this summer.  In addition to daily sessions, the U.S. will hold two closed-door scrimmages during the visit.

    The camp culminates with a friendly against the Korea Republic on February 1 at StubHub Center.
