France 1, USMNT 0: Klinsmann Does His Best Bob Bradley, Except Not As Good- TYAC’s FInal Word

Tweet By Garrett McInnis Prior to the France match, I had completely unrealistic expectations. The same can be said of my expectations for Jurgen Klinsmann’s first few months as manager of the National Team.
