Soccer • Even before leading the United States in a difficult first-round group at next year's World Cup, Jurgen Klinsmann has been signed to stay on as the American coach for the 2018 World Cup.

The U.S. Soccer Federation said Thursday that Klinsmann has agreed to a four-year contract extension through 2018.

Klinsmann replaced Bob Bradley as the American national team coach in July 2011 and his new deal gives him the additional title of USSF technical director. The U.S. is 27-10-7 under Klinsmann and qualified for its seventh straight World Cup.

• The 2014 Major League Soccer All-Star Game will be against legendary German club Bayern Munich, the reigning European and Bundesliga champions.

The All-Star Game will be played in August at Jeld-Wen Field, home of the Portland Timbers.

Rangers draft Seahawks' Wilson

MLB • Yes, Russell Wilson loves baseball. But, for now, the Seattle Seahawks' quarterback is thinking about getting his team to the Super Bowl.

Wilson was selected by the Texas Rangers from the Colorado Rockies on Thursday in the Triple-A portion of baseball's winter meeting draft.

Wilson, who played minor league baseball for parts of two seasons before becoming an NFL star, will be placed on Texas' restricted list.
