The new United States national team head coach Gregg Berhalter said that he is happy to take charge of the team. He said that there are some good players in the squad and that it is up to him to make sure that they play as a team.
He said that the long-term objective of the team is to qualify for the next World Cup in Qatar and make sure that they have a good performance there. He said that it is not enough to earn your qualification and only to be eliminated at the group stage.
On a shorter-term, it is important that the team learn to play collectively and have a good team spirit. He said that if you want to succeed in football you need to learn how to play together and this is what he wants to instill in the team.
Gregg Berhalter said that he has been following the United States national team closely in recent months and he knows that there is a good potential.
