USA coach Jurgen Klinsmann fears fans can't travel to support team at World Cup

USA coach Jurgen Klinsmann is worried fans of the national team would not be able to watch all of their matches at the 2014 FIFA World Cup finals.

The German trainer is concerned about the complicated travelling itinerary to watch all of their Group G matches.

The Americans will play Ghana in Natal, Portugal in Manaus and Germany in Recife, arguably the toughest schedule of any of the 32 finalists.

There are no direct flights from the US to Natal. The city is on the eastern tip of Brazil, closer to Africa than North America, and travel from New York through Sao Paulo or Rio de Janeiro will take 15 hours or more.

“I think that for a team to travel long distances at the World Cup is not that difficult because you are well taken care of with charter flights and road escorts,” he added.

“It might be more difficult for the fans to go from one place to the other.

“We are going to have the biggest fan group ever from the US going to Brazil. We have amazing fans so hopefully they are going to be all right.

“We all expect an amazing World Cup in the country of the five-times champions.”
