American VoicesOpinion ISSUE 50•23 Jun 12, 2014

As the 2014 FIFA World Cup kicks off today in Brazil, U.S. coach Jürgen Klinsmann is taking flak for stating at a press conference that “For us now, talking about winning a World Cup is just not realistic,” a comment that many U.S. fans have viewed as defeatist and un-American. What do you think?

  • “What a fatalist. This guy also probably thinks soccer will never be more popular than football in the U.S.”

  • “Look, he’s just trying to manage expectations in the mistaken belief that anybody has any.”

  • “Won’t he have egg on his face when he’s holding that giant trophy.”
