Jurgen Klinsmann may not be releasing the roster for the U.S. men’s national team until Monday, but there are ways of starting to piece together the players called in before the names drop.
For example, yesterday, Sporting KC player Matt Besler tweeted this:
Yes, of course you can sit next to me on my flight this morning. Nothing to worry about, Kaynevia.me/-9d15sjk
A quick check of Kim Kardashian’s Twitter account revealed this tweet:
Just touched down in Miami!!! Quick trip but feels good to be here!— Kim Kardashian (@KimKardashian) February 2, 2013
Put the two together and what do you get? Matt Besler in Miami, where the USMNT is gathering before heading to Honduras for their World Cup qualifier.
Who needs a roster when you have social media and detective skills?
A tip to teams on social media during the transfer window: before announcing a transfer move, perhaps it would be best to make sure the deal is done before tweeting about it.
That said, we did find this exchange rather amusing. Oh, the wonders of Twitter!
