For fans here in America, the contrast between last week’s thrilling, edge-of-your-seat excitement and non-stop, breakneck action during the Stanley Cup Finals and the actually-see-the-grass-grow-on-the-pitch dullness of the soccer tournament could not be more obvious.
So, with Team USA about to take the
field pitch against Ghana without Landon Donovan, the greatest international player in American history, the big question is, Will the Americans be able to score a single goal before being booted from the tourney?
Coach Jurgen Klinsmann has built this team in his image for
2018 the future to not score goals er, um, whatever, so whatever happens, the German egotist with the monster contract is likely to be happy — after all, he has already predicted failure for his own team!
Team USA literally has nowhere to go but up!
