The USA manager puts his signature to a letter looking to help USA fans skip work for their big match against Germany.
The USA face Germany today knowing that just a draw will be enough to see them through to the second round of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, something that makes the game the national team’s most significant for some years.
With this in mind, the USA’s German manager Jurgen Klinsmann seems to be encouraging fans to take the day off work, putting his signature to a letter shared on social media by the USA’s football federation.

With the USA only needing a draw against Germany, the game brings back bad memories of Gijon in 1982, when West Germany played out a 1-0 victory over Austria that saw both sides through at the expense of Algeria.
Ghana and Portugal will be hoping that lightning doesn’t strike twice, with both teams knowing that a victory will give them a chance of qualification.
