US Men’s National Team proves Klinsmann right in final World Cup tune-up

The United States 2-1 win against Nigeria placed some validity behind coach Jurgan Klinsmann's contention earlier in the week that talk about formations and systems wasn't worth the time.

To paraphrase the German coach, he contended talking about different systems really doesn't apply to the modern game as it did a generation prior, and what everyone should concern themselves with how the players "connect with each other".

COLUMBUS, Ohio-- There figure to be several changes made to the U.S. men's natinonal team's starting lineup heading into Tuesday's crucial World Cup qualifying showdown vs. Jamaica, and U.S. head coach Jurgen Klinsmann has already revealed some of them.

There was a time not too long ago when the U.S. national team enjoyed a wealth of midfield options and a lack of forwards. As the team heads into Tuesday's must-win World Cup qualifier, the Americans are faced with the opposite problem.

Injuries to Michael Bradley and Landon Donovan have exposed a lack of midfield depth and left Jurgen Klinsmann's team lacking attacking punch and stability.

Soccer-lite. That sums up the US men's national team performance against Jamaica yesterday. As if the players had been sinking Bud Light while the Jamaicans were hitting the hooch. The US performance was thin and weak. And it is time for coach Jurgen Klinsmann to flush it away before it is too late.

Just two days removed from Friday's disappointing 2-1 loss to Jamaica, Jurgen Klinsmann is left to figure out just which 11 players he can turn to for Tuesday's crucial rematch against the 'Reggae Boyz' in Columbus.

There were few good performances across the board for the Americans, and some that should lead to changes in the lineup.

This is a topic we began discussing on World Cup KickAround (weeknights 7pm/Sunday 11am on The Ticket) before the US game against Portugal. As those final 30 seconds unfolded Sunday nightthe importance of this phenomenon became all the more significant.

As much as that last second Portugal goal hurt there looms a bigger, more omnious gut-punch cocked and ready to land right on the already tender American middrift.

Being as Klinsi seems a bit allergic to playing central midfielders with possession/playmaking capabilities, I am here to provide him some antihistamine. It's a new clip of nearly every goal and assist notched by Mikkel Diskerud for club and country. I say "nearly" because it is missing one Stabaek and one Gent assist.
