When Klinsmann struck against the USA

[VIDEO PICK: History] On Sunday, for the first time since taking the U.S. helm, Juergen Klinsmann will coach against Germany, the country he scored for 47 times in 108 appearances. Three of those games were against the USA and he scored twice against the Americans, including at the 1998 World Cup.

In 1993, Klinsmann scored Germany's first goal in a 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 opening game.

    His goal ended this game for all intents & purposes (also allowing Germany to sit back & relax) ushering in our horrid WC'98. I was at all three games, & other than the 1st 20 min against Iran & maybe Frankie Hajduk's improvement from the tournament lead-up, it was so depressing to witness. Hopefully, Klinsmann isn't linked to our next horrid WC (if we even qualify) as well.
