[Germany's strength is in the midfield. They pack that area w/ 5 quality players who control the game and hunt in packs.,.]
One sees the tecnichal German team control match and hopes USA Coach Klinsmann moves that way. Watching the US actual play shows how much the side lacks: crisp passing, and players who cold cleanly receive a pass.
That old dude still playing showed me only a quick opening goal 'gainst Ghana.
Klinsmann's Kraut calvacade s'posed to bring all that technical play. You can't win just with defense and a stellar goalie like Tim Howard.
Of course in USA, NBA just rich people's soccer.
