Germany opened up in the second half of the friendly against the US and scored an emphatic 4-1 victory. A sigh of relief could be heard all over Germany. The biggest one from German coach Juergen Klinsmann. More troubling was the inability of the German attack to get going in the scoreless first half. With Landon Donovan, DeMarcus Beasley, Brian McBride, and Claudio Reyna missing the US defence kept the German attack at bay. One wonders what would have happened with the full strength US squad.
