On November 11th, the United States lost 1-0 to France in the sixth match in the Jurgen Klinsmann era. Since taking over the national team, Klinsmann has lost four times and has only won once, with the team scoring a paltry two goals.
However, the United States is playing a much stronger brand of soccer since Klinsmann has taken over and the new faces that we are seeing have certainly made the Yanks stronger.
With World Cup qualifying starting next June, fans are expecting to see some positive results before facing Antigua and Barbuda, Guatemala and Jamaica in the preliminary group.
A good time for the Americans to start will be against 2010 World Cup Group C foe Slovenia. In that World Cup matchup, the Yanks had a fantastic comeback after going down by two early in the game. Considering that fantastic comeback, it would be fitting that the United States would comeback from a slow start in the Klinsmann era in this friendly.
If the United States are going to win and get back to the winning ways that fans expect out of them, they will need to change up some facets of their game. Here are 10 of my suggestions for the Americans to improve in Ljubljana for this friendly.
