Bad Luck in World Cup Draw and Pessimistic Fans

With the World Cup just around the corner Jurgen Klinsmann’s the US national team coach is happy with his team in their top form and are looking to win it all. With many top teams in the tournament it is a long shot but Klinsmann’s team has shown resilience time and time again.

The US draw for the 2014 World Cup was unpredictable.  The worst possible scenario could have been Brazil, Italy and the Netherlands.  Two of which were previous champions and one who has a lot of potential.  A favorable draws include Belgium, Chile, and Croatia. The US was drawn in to the group of death or the toughest group that includes Ghana, Portugal, and Germany.

Many of the US soccer fans and analysts are very pessimistic about the US even going to the World Cup. After a great run of performances they feel like Jurgen Klinsmann got an unlucky draw and that the US won’t even be able to get out of the group stage.

Many students at San Mateo High School are very discouraged. “ I think that it is a very small and unlikely chance that the US will go through,” said David Haner a freshman.

Soccer is a major sport in a many countries, one of which is not the US. With many sports ahead of it in popularity such as football and baseball soccer is an underlying sport. Without having a very large chance of progressing on to the round of 16 so fans are very discouraged.

“I was very happy for the US in the World Cup until they were picked into the group of death. Now I think all the work for the last four years has been a waste and that it will be a miracle if the US get out of the World Cup.” said Daniele Lipparoni, a sophomore.

Jurgen Klinsmann who is the current coach of the US national team remains optimistic with the amount of quality he has in his roster of 26 for the World Cup. Previously a soccer player Klinsmann was put in the top 100 list of top 125 greatest living footballers. Klinsmann was the Germany head coach in 2010 when Germany finished third in the World Cup. He then stepped down and his assistant coach preceded him. Klinsmann then became head coach of German Club Bayern Munich. After being released he is now the US national team head coach.

With five month left till the World Cup, the US national team is training hard to earn success for the future.sad sports
