Just remember now is not the time to start to worry and freak out. Granted these last two months have not been ideal for the USMNT or its fans. Klinsmann is in a tricky situation to be honest. Does he stay with a majority of the group that he took to Brazil or does he essentially tear down the team and start from the bottom?

As I mentioned earlier, the core of the USMNT will all be in their mid to late thirties by the time 2018 World Cup rolls around. There are some young, promising and talented players coming up in the system. As much as he may not like it, Klinsmann should also keep an eye on the young players in MLS. He has already brought Sounders and future Tottenham Hotspur player DeAndre Yedlin to the national team. How long before more players like Morris and even Sean Okoli from the Sounders get called up?

There are plenty of other promising players in MLS like a Kelyn Rowe of the New England Revolution that deserve a call up to January camp. As much as he bashes the league, he needs to eat some crow and call some players from MLS as that will be where the majority of the players for the USMNT come from in 2018.
