International Friendly Reports & Analyses: France 1 - 0 United States

The United States remains at a loss for offense under Jurgen Klinsmann. Loic Remy outmuscled defender Clarence Goodson to score in the 72nd minute, giving France a 1-0 exhibition victory Friday night that dropped the Americans to 1-4-1 since Klinsmann replaced Bob Bradley as coach in late July. “It could have been a draw,” said goalkeeper Tim Howard, the best American player on the field. “They played really well, and they probably had better chances then we did.” Under Klinsmann, the former German national team star and coach, the Americans have been outscored 5-2 and shut out four times.

I just think it's really nice that wins don't matter in the Klinsy era. But maybe Sunil Gulati can see about having Egypt fire Bradley because really these issues are his fault for failing to develop the team better.
