The USMNT want 3 point full stop. They not only want 3 points, they want those points as a statement. An opening shot that says we mean business, and we just thrashed our supposed “boogey man” team, Ghana. They will be looking to win and win emphatically. Klinsmann is a fan of sports psychology and knows if the USMNT can do this, the mental boost will be immeasurable.
