The former German International still has much to decide ahead of the World Cup as he puts the final pieces of his squad together, the headache of a venue switch to Cyprus due to the recent tensions in the Ukraine another worry for the USA Head coach.
The US have lost two of the three friendly games they have played since qualifying and while Klinsmann has had plenty of opportunity to run the rule over MLS and Mexican based players the same cannot be said for the overseas based players.
The head coach admitted that he was keen to assess all the options available to him against the Ukraine, telling the U.S Soccer website “It’s difficult for us coaches to prepare everything for this summer’s World Cup only having this game on March 5 before going into preparation camp,”
“Therefore, for the European-based players, in these three or four days we are together and the game against Ukraine, it’s even more important they have a good showing.”
With the exception of Seattle Sounders’ Clint Dempsey and Edgar Castillo of Tijuana Klinsmann has named a predominately European based squad with the likes of Brad Guzan, Geoff Cameron, Oguchi Onyewu, Terence Boyd and Aaron Johannsson all out to make an impression.
German youth international Julian Green, currently with Bayern Munich, is training with the squad but is not eligible to play against the Ukraine.
Tim Ream has pulled out of the squad due to personal reasons while Michael Bradley is not fit to take his place with Klinsmann calling up Jonathan Spector as a replacement.
The clash with the US meanwhile is the only game the Ukraine, 3-2 aggregate losers to France in the qualifiers, will play before they begin their quest to reach the European Championship against Slovakia.
The 2012 European Championship co-hosts are set to hand debuts to Evgeny Makarenko, Andriy Pylyavskyi and Denis Boyko while Anatoliy Tymoshchuk could add to his 131 caps against the US.
