German Jurgen Klinsmann was drafted in by US Soccer in 2011 to take over from Bradley and after a slow start secured qualification for the Brazil World Cup. His team were pitted in a complicated group along with Portugal, Germany and Ghana. Defying the odds, with a win, draw and defeat, the USWNT progressed on goal difference and were rewarded with a Round of 16 tie against Belgium. Klinsmann’s side were unlucky as they outplayed the European side for spells of the tie but fell to a Romelu Lukaku winner in extra time.
