"We are really excited to get our first chance to play at home after the World Cup," said U.S. head coach Jurgen Klinsmann. "The support from our fans in the United States and everyone that traveled to Brazil was awesome, and we want to build on that energy. We have an exciting four years ahead of us, and this is just the beginning. The U.S. team has a great history at Rentschler Field, so we are hoping for another big crowd against Ecuador."

The United States holds a 2-5-4 record against Ecuador in a series dating back to 1984. Both of the USA's victories came on U.S. soil, including a 1-0 win on March 10, 2002, in Birmingham, Alabama, that saw U.S. goalkeeper and New Jersey native Tim Howard earn his first cap and first shutout.

Led by Manchester United winger Antonio Valencia, Ecuador has qualified for three FIFA World Cups, (2002, 2006 and 2014) and just missed the South American playoff spot during the 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign. Drawn into Group E along with France, Switzerland and Honduras, La Tricolor compiled a 1-1-1 record in Brazil.

Rentschler Field has hosted big-time matches for the MNT, including a World Cup qualifier, two Send-Off Series games and a CONCACAF Gold Cup group match. Brian McBride scored the game-winner in the 1-0 win on Aug. 17, 2005, against Trinidad & Tobago in final round qualifying for the 2006 FIFA World Cup, then Brek Shea made his first international goal count as the USA defeated Costa Rica 1-0 and won its group on the way to capturing the 2013 Gold Cup title. Overall, the United States holds a 3-1-0 record at the venue.

The United States reached the Round of 16 at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, advancing out of the "Group of Death" with a second-place finish behind tournament champion Germany. Overall, the USA has posted a 5-3-2 record this year.

The U.S. Men's National Team will travel to face the Czech Republic on Sept. 3 in Prague, marking the first match for the United States following the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

He first starting coaching the boys team, which he did for 7 years then took over the girls soccer program for the next 8. His boys teams were almost unstoppable.

SCOG Individual & Small Group Training
by posted 07/07/2014
 

Soccer Club of Guilford offers individual and small group training over the summer.

Different than a clinic environment, improve your game with individual attention.

Individual Training

These sessions are designed to offer a more individual approach to training. Players benefit from a session on a one on one basis based on their individual skills and needs.  

Individual FUNCTIONAL Training

Within the individual training environment, players can also request 'functional training' where they  would work on the primary skillset for the players position (s), for example a striker would work skills such as on receiving the ball from both the ground and air (back to goal/side to goal),  finishing (ground/air), off the ball movement and heading.

Small Group Training

These sessions are designed to concentrate on the individuals' needs, in addition to incorporating small game-like situations within a small group. This option is a great mix of individual attention and small group coaching. Groups can be made of teammates looking to work on a specific tactical aspect of play, or just practice their own technique in a group environment.

In both the individual and small group the sessions, fitness and agility can be the focus.
