US Men's Soccer Team Finally Practices With Klinsmann; Prepares for match with Mexico

On Sunday, most of the United States Men's National Soccer team convened with their new head coach, Juergen Klinsmann, to begin preparations for Wednesday's friendly against Mexico in Philadelphia.

Thirteen players were able to make it in time for Sunday night's meeting and practice in which Klinsmann introduced the team to their new coaching staff.  He also then laid out his future plans, in terms of strategy and playing style.

Afterwards the team broke into a few drills and a mini-scrimmage in front of their new coach.  The rest of the team is expected to arrive on Monday.  Twice-daily practices will be held the next few days before Wednesday's match.
