Where is that quality win they asked... Klinsmann hadn't won a big time game yet.
Then Wednesday happened.
Dempsey, the leading US goalscorer in Europe, put one past Buffon, and the US runs away with a 1-0 win at Italy.
1st win in all that time over Italy.
More importantly, a big win for the US, for Klinsi, and just in case your friends say that Italy was "missing players", tell them this:
US was without captain Landycakes. The US was outshot 19 (7 SOG) to 4 (2 SOG) and only possessed the ball for 1/3 of the match, in Italy, in Ferarris Stadium, where the Italians have never lost with a lineup including Buffon, Motta, De Rossi and Pirlo while the US started Goodson at CB. The US also subbed in Eddie Johnson and Terrance Boyd late in the game... EJ... and Boyd...
Yeah, Italy pretty much bit the big one on this match. Best 2 of 3?
