What Jürgen Klinsmann's doing by giving fresh, young faces like Brek Shea a shot to contribute to the U.S. Men's National Team might be exactly what the American soccer needed to evolve beyond second-tier international relegation.
But that doesn't mean Shea falling all over his feet rather than capitalizing on a golden opportunity shouldn't be the source of at least a giggle.
The U.S. won the match 1-0 in Miami last night, but that was bunk. Clint Dempsey got jobbed on his second goal of the match when the linesman said he used his hands to hold a defender down in the 84th minute. Add Shea's miss to that and Klinsmann notched a 3-0 victory for his first as U.S. coach.
