US prospects blog: Five U23s who could boost Rio qualifying squad

Jurgen Klinsmann is impressed with the performances of young players for the U.S. during January camp and Sunday's win over Iceland.

As important as U.S. national team's just-concluded training camp was in identifying new talent for Jurgen Klinsmann's senior squad, the month-long get-together was probably even more valuable for U.S. Under-23 coach Andi Herzog.

The U-23s face a decisive two-leg playoff against Colombia next month for a berth in this summer's Olympics, and Herzog needs to bolster a roster that missed its first chance to reach Rio de Janeiro versus lesser competition last October during CONCACAF's Olympic qualifying tournament.

"This is our big wish, that Andi Herzog really benefits now from this camp in terms of his Under-23 players because that opportunity to have those two playoff games with Colombia and then hopefully go into Rio de Janeiro is just so big," Klinsmann recently told US Soccer.

Jozy Altidore determined to avoid injury in big year for U.S., Toronto FC

United States forward Jozy Altidore says his side deserved to beat Canada and hopes 2016 will be a great year for the team.

CARSON, Calif. -- Jozy Altidore feels he has watched far too many of the United States' biggest games from the sidelines over the past nine years, so he decided to do something about it.

The striker showed up to the team's annual January camp one week earlier and more than 10 pounds lighter to get a head start on surviving the long soccer season intact.

"When I look at the past years, the opportunities that I've missed for the national team, they hurt me," Altidore said. "I feel like I always miss...

United States 'frustrated' by Jermaine Jones suspension - Klinsmann

A late goal from Toronto FC striker Jozy Altidore gave the United States a 1-0 victory over Canada.
Jermaine Jones 160205
Jones played center back for the U.S. vs. Canada because the team was short on central defenders.

CARSON, Calif. - U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann said that the six-game suspension hanging over veteran midfielder Jermaine Jones for an incident in a Major League Soccer playoff game last October is "frustrating" for the national team.

In handing down its punishment in December, the domestic league determined that the physical contact Jones made with referee Mark Geiger in the New England Revolution's match with D.C. United amounted to assault, which carries an automatic six-match ban.
