Thursday's match is at noon.  The United States plays Germany and the outcome plays a substantial role in determining if we go to the next round of the World Cup.

The United States will advance with a win or a tie.  If we lose, it could get complicated.

So, US coach Jurgen Klinsmann wants everybody's support.  That's why he wrote a note to get you out of work.

We're sure it'll work with your boss.
