U.S. Soccer Coach Jurgen Klinsmann Urges US Employers To Let Their Workers Watch USA vs Germany

By Robert Paul Reyes

U.S. Soccer coach Jürgen Klinsmann penned the above note to American employers urging them to let their employees off to watch America play Germany in the World Cup.

I`m off today, but if I was scheduled to work I would take off the day so I could watch the Americans beat the Germans. I don`t even like soccer, it`s as exciting as watching grass grow. But we must do our patriotic duty and cheer on the American squad.

For God`s sake don`t let the German-born American coach exhibit more patriotism than you!
