The 23 players arrived for their final workout at Stanford on Thursday, a quick session in the pool, before leaving the Bay Area. Klinsmann said Dempsey did “a lot of work yesterday” but the forward didn’t make any sudden sideways moves or runs during the training to avoid re-aggravating the groin.
Klinsmann says “he’s all good” and will be at full speed in training Friday. Dempsey, who plays for the Seattle Sounders of Major League Soccer, withdrew shortly before kickoff of Tuesday’s 2-0 friendly win over Azerbaijan at Candlestick Park.
The Americans were to head east later in the day ahead of Sunday’s game against Turkey in Harrison, New Jersey.
