U.S. Soccer part ways with Jurgen Klinsmannby Jack Kitson / 21 November 2016, 20:48Tweet
The United States national team have parted ways with Jurgen Klinsmann after losing back-to-back 2018 World Cup qualifiers.
Klinsmann had been in charge of The Stars and Stripes since 2011, but had come under increasing pressure following a 2-1 defeat to Mexico, then a 4-0 humiliation at the hands of Costa Rica.
The consecutive losses leave the US rock-bottom of the six-team group, although it's worth noting that there are still eight qualifying matches left to play.
Highlights include leading the US out of the “Group of Death” at the 2014 World Cup, while a a year earlier he guided his troops on a record-setting 12-game winning streak.
In total Klinsmann, who was briefly linked with the England job in the summer, won 55 of his 98 matches at the helm.
