USA coach Bob Bradley has revealed his side will give all of their World Cup Group C rivals equal respect although he admits the focus is on their opening game against England on June 12.
Bradley and his 23-man squad have arrived in South Africa and the coach gave rivals Slovenia and Algeria as much respect as group favourites England.
Bradley said: "We respect everyone in our group.
"There has been a lot of attention on our first game with England. It's a great opportunity for us.
"But we certainly know that Slovenia and Algeria are excellent teams. It will be a tough group and we are looking forward to it."
