U.S. manager Jurgen Klinsmann says in the 9-minute video that he wants to treat this camp and the five-game stretch “like it’s a five-game tournament, with all it’s kind of dimensions, the stress of it, the expectations, the training intensity, but also the competition within the team, who is starting 11, and who are the guys challenging every position? So that’s what we want to see over the next couple of weeks.”

Oh, and the coach leaves the best for last:

“We want to make it clear, that Brazil 2014 starts now.”
