Brian McBride says the goal for the Red, White and Blue is to stay fit.
After coming through three games in six days with a couple of setbacks, U.S. striker Brian McBride stated that World Cup form isn’t their first concern at this time.
The Fulham man believes they can get a more solid idea of where they stand performance-wise after arriving in Hamburg later this week.
“It’s hard to judge where we’re at,” said McBride after firing the only goal of the game against Latvia on Sunday night.
“The most important thing is getting through them and getting fitness.”
Defender Cory Gibbs picked up an injury against Morocco in the first match of the Send-Off Series that has ruled him out for World Cup, and captain Claudio Reyna picked up a minor knock in the same game.
