WASHINGTON—Insisting that with a roster of this caliber, it was “basically in the bag,” the entire nation expressed their confidence Tuesday that the U.S. men’s national soccer team could very well participate in the 2014 FIFA World Cup. “I know it's still early, but I’m not afraid to call it right now and say that the United States will attend the tournament,” Tempe, AZ resident Dan Freher told reporters from his seat at a Buffalo Wild Wings, echoing the sentiments of millions of soccer fans across America, all of whom were excitedly anticipating a resounding U.S. appearance at the international level. “With [Jurgen] Klinsmann as coach and with seasoned players like Tim Howard and Clint Dempsey leading the way, the U.S. could easily go all the way to the group stage.
