With a week to decompress from the grind of the MLS season (and Nashville SC’s loss to Philadelphia Union last Sunday), Zimmerman will have a chance to keep sharp and stay in the picture for the USMNT when competitive games return in World Cup Qualifying in January. He will report to this camp Sunday.
