Recognize that training ground? You should. The United States Men's National Team is in England training for their upcoming friendly match against Colombia on Friday, which is taking place in London for some reason. The match itself will be held at Fulham's Craven Cottage, but the USMNT is preparing for the match at Spurs' training grounds in Enfield.

Tottenham has had a rather friendly relationship with the USMNT in recent years, helped in no small part I'm sure by the fact that the American team is managed by Tottenham legend Jurgen Klinsmann. In addition, Brad Friedel is, of course, still a Hotspur. Clint Dempsey is another former Spur, although he is not a member of the 25-man squad set to take on Colombia.

DeAndre Yedlin has also been sold to Tottenham from Seattle Sounders and there are strong suggestions that he may join the club as soon as January. Yedlin tweeted the following yesterday en route to London to join the squad:

Maybe we can convince him to just stay?
