Klinsmann letterUnited States boss Jurgen Klinsmann has asked the fans to take the day off and support the national team in the crucial World Cup fixture against Germany.

Team USA have largely impressed at the start of the tournament, defeating Ghana 2-1 before narrowly missing out on a win against Portugal and they now need just one more point to qualify.

USA, who are 2.43 (10/7) not to lose, need all the help they can get, which is why Jurgen Klinsmann has produced a letter pleading with the employers to let their workers take the day off in order to watch the Germany game.

The letter, published on Klinsmann’s official Twitter account reads:

“I understand that this absence may reduce the productivity of your workplace, but I can assure you that it is for an important cause.

“The #USMNT (U.S. Men’s National Team) has a critical World Cup game vs Germany and we will need the full support of the nation if we are to advance to the next round.

“By the way, you should act like a good leader and take the day off as well. Go USA! Signed Jurgen Klinsmann, Head Coach, U.S. National team”.

After some 16 million people back home watched the Ghana game, the numbers rose to 24.7 million viewers for the Portugal clash, and everything suggests another record will be broken when Team USA take on Germany.
