The World Cup is only a few months away, and the US National Team is ready to go into battle. The team has seen a lot of changes in the last 4 years since the previous World Cup, and even though it was drawn into the "Group of Death" I think the USA still stands a chance. The players and fans are ready to see the USA become the champions of the world, and these reasons are why I think their dreams may come true.

Ever since Jurgen Klinsmann became head coach, he's been getting results. Sure old favorites began to disappear from the lineup, but the team started winning more matches. He's been preparing for this tournament since the first day, and I believe he will get the team through the cup.

USA has come a long way in 2.5 -- when it was at its lowest FIFA ranking in history. Jurgen Klinsmann helped a lot with that, but also the team has just been playing better. Passion is more obvious on the pitch and fans across the USA are starting to wake up and realize soccer is a great sport to watch in this great nation.

USA is definitely not known as one of the greatest team in the world. It's only 13th in FIFA ranking, but when the whole team is fit and available, they plays great under pressure. The team was recently able to hold Mexico 0-0 in Estadio Azteca, and then beat them 2-0 in Columbus. The team is ready to win more.

Landon Donovan said this would be his last chance at a World Cup. I guess the validity of this statement is up to him and his coach, but it definitely means he'll be playing harder than ever. He is currently the team's top scorer, and I think he will only continue adding to that tally.

One of the biggest moves in MLS in the last few years is the return of its "Americans abroad." The talents of players such as Clint Dempsey, Michael Bradley and Maurice Edu are now back in its home turf and playing against players with whom they share a jersey during the World Cup. Not only does this keep them in peak fitness, but it helps build confidence as they become stars on the pitch.
