2014 FIFA World Cup: Has Jurgen Klinsmann reversed course?
Jurgen Klinsmann struck a different tone when speaking with media Sunday.
On Wednesday, Jurgen Klinsmann said that it was unrealistic to expect the United States Men's National Team to win the World Cup.
On Sunday, he said that he planned to be in Brazil until after the World Cup final.
So has Klinsmann changed his mind?! Is he now convinced the Americans are primed for a run to the World Cup final?!
No, probably not. At best, he's just tossing a modicum of confidence his team's way. At worst, he's just disclosing his plans to stay in Brazil until the end of the Cup.
Either way, it's at least a change of tone from his comments last week.
"You have to be realistic. Every year we are getting stronger," Klinsmann said. "We don't look at ourselves as underdogs. We are not. We are going to take the game to Ghana and they will take it to us and it will be an exciting game and then we go from there.
"For us now talking about winning a World Cup, it is just not realistic. If it is American or not, you can correct me."
The Americans will open play Monday night against Ghana.
