US to go offensive

Wednesday, July 02, 2014

SALVADOR, Brazil - United States coach Jurgen Klinsmann says attack will be the best form of defence when his American underdogs tackle Belgium today for a place in the World Cup quarter-finals.

The United States confounded all pre-tournament predictions by battling their way out of a daunting Group G, finishing behind Germany but claiming the runners-up spot ahead of Portugal and Ghana.

Klinsmann acknowledged, however, that his team must improve on last Thursday's 1-0 defeat against the Germans in Recife if they are to provide another shock by eliminating Belgium, regarded by many as tournament dark horses.

Of particular concern to Klinsmann is his team's attack.
