The USA Men’s National Soccer team is on the hunt to qualify for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, and have a very good chance to do so out of the CONCACAF group. As they try to do so, let’s go over some interesting facts about the team. One of the most interesting things about this team is that they finally have two high quality goalkeepers to push one another to play better. Mainstay Tim Howard is joined by Brad Guzan, who plays club football at Aston Villa, and can give Howard a run for the starting spot. Even more interesting, perhaps, is the fact that the team is trying to transition from being led by Landon Donovan in their attack to being led by Clint Dempsey. Dempsey, who plays for Tottenham Hotspur during the club season, is a great goal scorer, but it will be interesting to see if he can lead the team to the World Cup and towards a championship. Also fascinating is that the US men’s team is led by a former World Cup winner in Germany’s Jurgen Klinsmann, directv offers, who won one with Germany during his playing career. We will see if he can do the same thing as a coach for the USA.
