BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Thursday is a big day for the United States Men’s National Team and the rest of Group G in the World Cup. All four teams (Germany, USA, Ghana, and Portugal) are still alive and playing for a chance to advance into the knockout round. Ghana faces Portugal while the US meets up with Germany to wrap up group play. The problem though for many fans is the time of the games. Both games begin at 11 a.m. (CST) when most people are at work.
Thankfully the USMNT’s coach has you covered! Jürgen Klinsmann tweeted out a signed excuse to miss work so you can watch the match-up with Germany.
