Howard: The anchor on an evolving team

22 June

As one of the survivors of Jurgen Klinsmann's overhaul of the US national team, Tim Howard is a linchpin of the team bidding to qualify for the knockout stages of the World Cup in Brazil.

Klinsmann has focused most of his attention over the last three years on changing the United States style of play, urging his players to push forward more and be comfortable in possession while overhauling the American back line. Part of his ability to do both is his faith in Howard, who is at the top of the so-called spine of the American team.

14 June

Rooney is a wonderful player, but hes not 100 per cent. I think Ross Barkley could cause us a lot of trouble. The question is: will he play?

For us, Marco Verratti [is a young player who could catch the eye]. I put him ahead of Immobile and [Lorenzo] Insigne because of the experience hes gained at PSG. Hes got a lot of top level experience now.

For them, Barkley and [Adam] Lallana. I think that this time England has a lot of quality in attacking positions, and that has always been a problem for them in the past.
