World Cup 2014: Klinsmann Says skip Work and Watch the Game

Today the long awaited match between USA and Germany takes place in the World Cup 2014. The US now has great chances to win as their secret weapon Will Ferrell is joining the line-up.

USMNT head coach Juergen Klinsmann wants to get the whole nation behind team USA. He tweeted a note that you can fill out and give your boss as an excuse to stay home from work and watch the game.

The game will be broadcasted at noon East Coast time, which means 9am for west coast fans. Obviously this is when most people are busy at work. Soccer is not that popular in the United States, but maybe today's game will change that. Will you try to get your boss to give you time off to watch the game? Or even better watch the game with your colleges at work?

You can print the Klinsmann signed note from his Tweet below.

Juergen Klinsmann tweeted earlier that the Recife stadium is great and that the guys are ready. You can follow and support the US team under the Twitter tag #LetsDoThis.

The US team had an awesome start into the World Cup 2014 with the first goal scored already after only 30 seconds. Germany and United States have both 4 points in Group G. Today's game will define the winner of the group. Both team. There is a chance that either team is going home if Ghana or Portugal win their game with enough goals. This is why there is conspiracy talks about the game between Germany and USA. If they tie then both teams advance for sure. Obviously Klinsmann and Loew are going to play for a win. I am pretty sure though that if indeed they end up in a draw the world will assert that they fixed the game. That is just how it is. With Will Ferrell biting all Germans if he has to, is the guarantee that the United States win though.
