Klopp or Guardiola dream of USA after elimination

The United States, the host of the Copa America, is experiencing an earthquake after being eliminated in the group stage, and after two years of hosting the World Cup, it finds itself facing a sports project in no man’s land and with the future of coach Gregg Berhalter. Up in the air.

Even his angry surroundings demand big names on the bench that come up to him. Jurgen Klopp or Pep Guardiola.

Monday’s loss to Uruguay at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City was evidence of the United States’ failure in what had seemed a relatively easy group. Since then, with the exception of Uruguay, they have competed with Panama and Bolivia.

But Berhalter’s team’s journey ended with just three points, which they earned in the first match against Bolivia. They then lost 1-2 to Panama and 0-1 to Uruguay.

The United States, a country that used to dominate almost every sport, lived with great expectations in the Copa America, which was organized in some exciting years for soccer, in which the American Football League succeeded in bringing legends such as “Leo” Messi and the Uruguayan Luis Suarez.

There were more than 55,000 fans at Arrowhead to support Team USA. But aside from protests over some poor refereeing decisions against Uruguay, Berhalter’s team didn’t know how to show its face.

Klopp and Guardiola, environmental dreams

“Go big or go home,” was the refrain on American television, as names like Klopp or Guardiola were asked to take over the team.

They were the fruit of frustration at seeing a team achieve less impressive results than previous generations, despite having many of its members competing in the major European leagues.

In the previous Copa America, hosted by the United States in 2016, the US team reached the semi-finals. In the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, they surrendered in the round of 16, while in 2018 they did not qualify.

There are two key years opening up for the United States, which in 2026 will host the World Cup with Canada and Mexico and which is called upon to relaunch its sporting project, either with Berhalter or with a new coach on the bench.
