Jurgen Klinsmann and U.S soccer have agreed to a 4-year extension, which will keep Klinsmann as head coach for the national team through 2018.

It's been about two and a half years since the U.S brought in Klinsmann and since then there has been a dramatic improvement.

Some notable accomplishments under Klinsmann include a 27-10-7 record, a 12 game winning streak (longest in U.S History), a gold cup title and a first place finish in CONCACAF which qualified the U.S for next years World Cup.

There is no doubt that Klinsmann is leading the USMNT in the right direction.

Now, his biggest test will come next year during the World Cup, when he will attempt to get the U.S. out of the the "Group of Death."

This Group is considered the toughest group of the tournament and is made up of Portugal, Ghana, United States and of course Klinsmann's former team Germany, who is ranked 3rd by FIFA and favored by many to take the World Cup.

Though Klinsmann has done a lot for the U.S. expectations have only gotten higher.
