Could the United States men’s national team lose its manager before a critical pair of World Cup qualifiers?

Jurgen Klinsmann, fresh off a semifinal appearance in the Copa America Centenario, has been linked with a move to England to coach the Three Lions following Roy Hodgson’s resignation.

A Sky Sports report says, “Klinsmann is intrigued by the possibility of managing England, Sky sources understand.”

That’s a simple enough line, but worth noting. There aren’t too many projects more layered and intriguing than the USMNT, but England could be one of them. When you consider how far the nation has fallen and how it seems to be a matter confidence, Klinsmann may be capable of taking care of that.

Klinsmann played for Tottenham Hotspur between 1994-15 and 1997-98, his lone connection to England. He lives in California and his son plays goalkeeper at Cal, so there are plenty of moving pieces.
