USMNT TRAINING STORY: The U.S. men's national soccer team got it's training camp underway Thursday (January 9) in the U.S. after cancelling plans to go to Qatar following unrest in the Middle East.

Head coach Gregg Berhalter told reporters the move from Doha to the IMG Aacdemy in Florida was "precautionary" and he was satisfied the right decision had been made.

Berhalter is looking to prepare his side for a busy year as the U.S. begins qualifying for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar after missing out last time in Russia.
