The United States men’s soccer team will end 2016 with a bitter taste in its mouth.
Following Friday’s narrow loss to Mexico, Team USA head coach Jurgen Klinsmann called on his players to react positively in the next game at Costa Rica.

The U.S. fell 4-0 to Costa Rica on Tuesday, dropping to the bottom of the CONCACAF standings in the final round of qualifying for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. The result heaped loads of pressure on Klinsmann, with many calling for U.S. Soccer to replace him.
