RECIFE, Brazil, June 26 (UPI) -- If you want to get out of work today to watch the USA soccer game against Germany, then U.S. Soccer coach Jürgen Klinsmann has got your back.

Klinsmann penned a note to American employers urging them to let their workers off the clock to go watch his team play Germany at noon ET on ESPN.

"I understand that this absence may reduce the productivity of your workplace, but I can assure you that it is for an important cause," Klinsmann wrote.


"By the way, you should act like a good leader and take the day off as well. Go USA!" was how he ended the note.

He had another suggestion on Twitter:


If the U.S. team ties or beats Germany, they will advance to the knockout round. If they lose to Germany, they can still advance, but will need the Portugal/Ghana match to end in a specific way.
