Jurgen Klinsmann

Below is Jurgen’s letter found at his website:

A lot has happened since the summer of 2004. I was not even able to update this website since I’ve got the opportunity to coach the German National Team towards the FIFA World Cup 2006 in Germany. It is a big honor and a privilege to be the Coach of this team and I will do everything possible to help the team succeeding in the biggest football event of the world.

I hope to see you in Germany in 2006?

Sincerely,

Jürgen

Germany is enjoying the best start in 36 years which attracted a TV viewing share of 82.2 percent that suddenly rocketed the host nation as one of the top favorites to win the World Cup Finals.

Jurgen has this to say:

“We’re very satisfied. We’ve finished the first stage with three victories, and won our group.”

Germany’s confidence is rising as well as their play. With Michael Ballack providing a progressive leadership maturity, Klose leading all scorers and a young attacking team determined to win; the team’s expectations is higher than ever before.

Germany Football UniformJurgen Klinsmann instilled a winning attitude in the team which came at a high price. First the German FA were jettisoned together with Sepp Maier, the goalkeeping coach. Oliver Kahn, the superstar of FIFA World Cup 2002 was axed in favour of Arsenal FC’s Jens Lehmann.

More changes came when Klinsmann picked young, fearless players and had them playing a risky, attacking game opposite to the German style; they scored a lot, but conceded many as well. Germany is a new team under Klinsmann’s leadership and now they may win another World Cup Finals.

Though it is still a long way to go to for the host nation and as Klinsmann admitted: “We’re all well aware we only have tough fixtures ahead, and we’ll definitely have to improve, starting with the Sweden match. But we’ve come a long way over the last few weeks, and we’ve kept our focus in every match. We’re justifiably confident about meeting Sweden. We can already be proud of what we’ve set in motion, but the tournament only really starts with the knockout stage. Both the players and the coaching staff accept the side must step up a gear immediately, as the Swedes represent robust and compact opponents.

Sweden were determined and focused even in the goalless draw against Trinidad and Tobago. We’ll focus on every tiny detail in our preparations. We’ve watched all three of their matches so far, and we’re aware they rate among the genuine contenders for the trophy. We took a very close look at every team and every player even before the tournament, so we’re very well informed about the way they play. We’ll review the analysis and pass the right information on to the players.”

I am a Brazilian fan and I believe without any doubts that they are going to win the World Cup Finals; until Germany’s revolution started to show.
