Jurgen Klinsmann has been fired as USMNT soccer manager after five years. The new leader of the team is Bruce Arena. Arena managed the U.S. soccer team from 1998-2006 with a record of 71-30-29. He also led them to the 2002 World Cup quarterfinals.  Klinsmann’s coaching of the USMNT went from 2011-2015 and he had a record of 55-27-16. Klinsmann also led the team to their longest winning streak ever, with 12 games. Klinsmann played soccer in for Germany at the the position of striker, from 1980-1998. He scored a total of 40 goals in 82 appearances. Arena appeared in one game for U.S.A.; a second-half sub. He didn’t score any goals as the U.S.A. lost to Israel 2-0. Arena has more coaching experience. And maybe this well help U.S.A. as the 2018 World Cup comes nearer and nearer.
