US goalie Tim Howard explains what it's like dealing with the media pressure surrounding the 2014 World Cup.

Howard expects the relocation to Brazil for final World Cup preparations to allow the team 'to really dial it in.' The USMNT open World Cup Group G play against Ghana next Monday.

Staying with the World Cup for Monday's soccer news roundup, the USMNT got a significant contribution from forward Jozy Altidore on Saturday.

Their Words

"The buzz has been big, so we just tried to get every last bit of media, interviews and press days out of the way," Howard said

"We’re ready and eager to be down in Sao Paulo. Then we can start to really dial in. The goal is to put our heads down and break out of the cage in the first game against Ghana.
