The flirtation is finally over. After several previous attempts to hire the former German soccer legend, Juergen Klinsmann has been hired to coach the United States Men's Soccer team.
As a player, Klinsmann was a striker with the 1990 German national team that won the World Cup. He scored 11 goals in three world cups. As a coach, or manager, he guided the German team to a third-place finish at the 2006 World Cup. He was relieved of his coaching duties for his country soon after the tournament, and followed that with an unsuccessful stint managing Bayern Munich, one of the most storied clubs in the Bundesliga.
