Bosnia and Herzegovina vs USA
The United States will take on Bosnia and Herzegovina in a friendly match on Wednesday.
The Americans enter the match as the top team in the CONCACAF. The US leads the World Cup qualifiers for its confederation and has recently won the Gold Cup.
Other American headlines include a recent transfer of Clint Dempsey to Seattle. US Coach Jurgen Klinsmann spoke about the shocking move with ESPN.
"There is always another level. If you one day reach the highest level, then you've got to confirm it, every year," he said. "I respect that move from Clint as a move he makes for his life and his family with a very big financial opportunity there as well.
"I always said if Landon [Donovan] decides to stay at the Galaxy and not challenge himself in Europe, that is his decision, but at the same time, it's my job to tell them what the next level is or could be and challenge them to get there because that is what sports is all about, measuring yourself against the best. Because the guys we are going to meet in Brazil 2014 are the best in the world, and I need to prepare them for that."
Bosnia and Herzegovina leads Group G with 16 points in the World Cup qualifiers and has obtained five wins, one draw, and no losses.
This will be the first meeting between the USA and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
