[VIDEO PICK] New U.S. coach Juergen Klinsmann played against the USA three times and scored twice against the Americans, including a strike at the 1998 World Cup.

In June of 1993, Klinsmann scored Germany's first goal in its thrilling 4-3 win in Chicago in the U.S. Cup, a tournament the Americans used to prepare for the 1994 World Cup the USA hosted.

Klinsmann started against the USA in a 3-0 friendly win in Stanford, Calif., in December of 1993 but didn't hit the net.

At the 1998 World Cup, Klinsmann scored Germany's second goal in a 2-0 win in the Group F opening game -- the first of three straight losses for the Americans.

    Looks like a Juergen hand-ball goal in 93 to me.

    John Doyle's defending looked reminiscent of today USMNT team defending. It will be interesting if Jurgen sorts that out. Or is that our culture in this country to miss the obvious right in front of you as you look at the deeper more mystical possibilities.
