A very busy 2015 rolls on for the US. Games against Chile and Panama are behind them, and games against Denmark and Switzerland lay directly ahead. It's the first chance of the year for Jurgen Klinsmann to get a look at most of his European based players in the national team setting. It also looks like Klinsmann will have his strongest squad since the World Cup, with 11 of the players on that World Cup team called into this camp.

MLS, NASL and USL soccer pyramid has plenty of opportunity to be successful

World Cup Buzz at related • 0 views

The growth of soccer in the United States is something that can be easily taken for granted. We've seen the disastrous fallout that occurs when leagues overextend themselves, lacking the financial support to reach the lofty strata they desire to attain. Last week's flurry of Collective Bargaining Agreement negotiations in Major League Soccer brought this mode of thinking back to the forefront, as players and owners faced the real option of postponing the start of the 2015 season over labor costs.

Soccer in America has forever been the domain of those who enjoy combining philosophy and sport.
